Denby Dale station is a small station on the Penistone line between Penistone and Shepley. The area around the station is dominated by the Denby Dale viaduct, one of whose piers bears the station information boards:

Taking the road (Wood Lane) to the right of the viaduct in the previous picture leads us past a roundabout serving as a bus station to an old shed:

To the right a footbridge crosses the line:

Rounding the corner of the shed into the station car park, we see mosaics in the old windows:
