Dewsbury station, built in 1848, was briefly known as Dewsbury Wellington Road from 1924 to 1969. A Grade 2 listed building with mullioned windows and Jacobean gables, the station serves the bustling commuter town of Dewsbury - ferrying city workers, on the Huddersfield Line, to Leeds and Bradford, Wakefield and Huddersfield, all under ten miles away, and on to Liverpool Lime Street, Hull, Scarborough and Manchester Piccadilly, further afield. Famous for its stunning Grade 2 listed sandstone viaduct, the town is tucked on the banks of the River Calder and was once a thriving mill town. After a period of decline following the closure of the town's mills, Dewsbury has undergone something of a resurgence in recent years as it expanded to accommodate commuters. Many of the disused mills were converted into desirable flats, and several big-name stores moved into the area. The local market is one of the busiest in Yorkshire with over 400 stalls, making it well worth a visit.
