Woodhouse railway station, formerly "Woodhouse Junction", is a railway station serving the Woodhouse and Woodhouse Mill in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. The station is 8 km (5¼ miles) East of Sheffield Station on the Sheffield to Lincoln line. The next station East was Waleswood, until its closure in 1955, and is now Kiveton Park. The next station West is Darnall. Beighton railway station, originally adjacent to the junction with the Midland Railway, but rebuilt by the M.S. & L.R. when they commenced work on their "Derbyshire Lines", was until 1954 the next station South.

Woodhouse Mill, Orgreave and Fence were served by a station on the North Midland Railway named Woodhouse Mill.

History

The present station is the second built to serve the community of Woodhouse, then separated from and not under the governance of Sheffield. The original station, opened in September 1850, was situated at the bottom of Junction Lane, adjacent to the present Woodhouse Junction, formerly East Junction, signal box and was built to serve the communities of Beighton, then within Derbyshire, and Woodhouse. This station was closed on 11 October 1875 and replaced by one of the earliest examples of the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway's "Double Pavilion" designs at its present location.

Colliery lines

Woodhouse was the hub of two colliery branches: to the West a branch to Orgreave Colliery, which was extended to reach Treeton Colliery under the M.S.& L.R (Extension to London) Act 1893 and opened on 10th October 1898, and to the East, from Woodhouse East Junction, the Birley Branch, which served the Birley Collieries, belonging to the Sheffield Coal Company.

ervice

An hourly Westbound service to Sheffield and hourly Eastbound service to Lincoln are operated by Northern. A limited service is provided on Sundays. Woodhouse is also served by the Saturday only service linking Sheffield and Cleethorpes via Brigg.
