Honley station sign

Honley station lies between Brockholes and Berry Brow on the Penistone line south of Huddersfield, and like other stations on the now-singled line there are still traces of the infrastructure for a two-track railway.

The approach to the station, along Gynn Lane:

The front of the station building:

The building dates from Victorian timmes, as one can tell from the VR letterbox:

The side of the station frontage:

At the south end of the station the line crosses a footpath:

Honley bridge

On the other side of the bridge only wooden beams bridge the gap:

Further evidence of the singling of the tracks on this side, with stone pillars now supporting empty air:

Back on the operational side of the station, we enter the station building, which is fairly shabby:

This leads to some steps, which were probably once covered, but are no longer:

The last few steps do get a roof, actually:

A strange partition restricts the width of the entrance to the platform. I wonder why?

The platform opposite is there but disused. This yellow box bears the message "Network Rail. You are entering a legally protected environment site. You need to be briefed by your supervisor before starting work."

Approximately opposite the entrance to the working platform are these railings:

And where the platforms cross the footpath we saw earlier, they are made of wood:
