Sowerby Bridge railway station is used by the little community of the same name and the surrounding West Yorkshire villages. It was opened in the mid-19th century by the then Manchester and Leeds Railway, though it was later moved half a mile up the tracks. Several years later, the station became an important junction when a new line was laid by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway. Unfortunately, in the late ‘70s, a fire destroyed most of the station buildings, though new canopies were built several years later. It’s an unstaffed station, but passengers can buy tickets using the self-service machine. Other facilities include digital passenger information displays, step-free access to the two platforms and a large adjoining car park. There are three direct trains an hour to Leeds in 42 minutes and westbound to Manchester Victoria in 47 minutes.

Sowerby Bridge lies along the River Calder and there are several things to do near the station. If you come at the right time, you can catch one of the summer matches at the Sowerby Bridge Cricket Club, score tickets for one of the concerts at The Blind Pig or work on your exercise regime at the Sowerby Bridge Pool and Fitness Centre.
