Hyde North Station

View from the crossover bridge at Hyde North station.

The station opened as "Hyde Junction" in February 1863, being at the junction between the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway extension to New Mills, (operated jointly with the Midland Railway as the Sheffield and Midland Railway Companies' Committee), and the MS&L main line through Penistone to Sheffield).

On 17th September 1951, it was renamed Hyde North. Now it only has platforms on the (non electrified) tracks towards Romiley.

The electrified tracks that carry EMU trains from Manchester Piccadilly to Glossop and Hadfield pass behind the station and these trains call instead at nearby Flowery Field.

    1. I presume you mean the works on Johnsonbrook Road - I think parts of it is still in use but don't really know much about it.

    2. Thats right Gerald,at one stage it was quite huge or so it seemed in my youth,although time does tend to play tricks on the mind
