Shelley railway station forms the western terminus of the Kirklees Light Railway and serves the village of Shelley, West Yorkshire. England. There was never a station here on the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway.

History[edit]

The original standard gauge line was opened by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway as part of their 3.5 miles (5.6 km) branch line from Clayton West Junction on the Huddersfield and Sheffield Junction Railway (between Shepley and Denby Dale) to Clayton West. The trackbed was later used by the Kirklees Light Railway for a minimum gauge railway.
