Wortley Station. GCR Penistone – Sheffield Victora Line - DNT00302

Description

Wortley Station between Penistone and Deepcar on the Sheffield – Manchester Woodhead line opened with the line in 1845. Seen here with a sizeable staff for a small station.



The station was close to Wortley Hall seat of the Earl of Wharncliffe, a keen proponent of railway development, and there was a private waiting room for his and his family’s use.



The station closed in 1955 and train services on the line ceased in 1981 and the rails were subsequently lifted.
