One of Manchester's lonelier stations, Ardwick Railway Station sits a mile southeast of Manchester Piccadilly at an industrial crossroads a short distance from Ardwick Rail Depot. First opened in 1842, the station changed hands a number of times, appearing in late nineteenth-century timetables along the Manchester-Crewe line timetables. The station fell under increasing scrutiny ahead of sectorisation in the 1980s, and the future was grim for Ardwick for a time with longstanding plans to close Ardwick as well as two other stations in Greater Manchester. Plans to close the station were scrapped in 2006, however, due to the increasing importance of the station's positioning.

Ardwick station is operated and served by Northern trains along the Hope Valley Line. The station sees very sparse service, with two trains in each direction, calling on Monday to Friday only. Trains from Ardwick have a limited service to Hadfield and Marple, as well as from Rose Hill Marple. The single island platform has a shelter for passengers, although step-free access is not available.
