Mossley railway station serves the town of Mossley, Greater Manchester, England. It lies on the Huddersfield Line 9.9 miles (16 km) north-east of Manchester Victoria and is managed by Northern.

Facilities[edit]

The station is a small, two-platform station, with the only on-site services being a ticket office that is staffed during peak times. Disabled access to the station is limited, with wheelchair provision only being made for the Huddersfield to Manchester platform.[2][3] As the Manchester to Huddersfield platform is accessible through a single staircase, disabled passengers often find it easier to travel on to Huddersfield and then disembark at Mossley on the opposite platform when the train makes its return journey.

Services[edit]

Mossley is served by an hourly Northern service from Manchester Victoria station to Huddersfield station throughout the week, including Sundays, with some additional services during weekday peak hours.[4] A few services are extended to/from Leeds eastbound and to Wigan Wallgate or Southport westbound.

The more frequent TransPennine Express service, from Manchester Piccadilly station, passes through Mossley without stopping.
