Cottingley railway station serves the community of Cottingley around 3 miles south west of Leeds in West Yorkshire. It’s a relatively new station having only opened along the Huddersfield Line in the late ‘80s. Today, the station’s two platforms and the trains that pass through are operated by Northern. In recent years, the station has grown in importance with several nearby housing developments fuelling passenger numbers and making it one of the busiest commuter stations along the line. It’s an unstaffed station and there is no ticket office, so tickets need to be bought online in advance or on board the train. Facilities including shelters on both platforms, automatic announcements and electronic displays for passenger information and timetables. There is a footbridge just next to the station connecting both the platforms. Between Monday and Saturday, there is an hourly direct departure to Leeds taking just 9 minutes and Huddersfield in 27 minutes. This drops down to one service every two hours on a Sunday.

Cottingley might be small, but the station services as the easiest way to reach Elland Road stadium, home to Leeds United. If you’ve managed to score tickets to match day, you can follow the chanting fans on the train from Leeds out to Cottingley and then walk for around 15 minutes to the stadium.
