Diggle Railway Station served the village of Diggle and was located on the Huddersfield Line to the north of Uppermill. Situated immediately to the west of the Standedge tunnels, it was opened in 1849 along with the first rail tunnel and closed to passenger traffic in 1963.[1] [2] In its heyday, the station had platforms serving all four lines but little trace remains of it today (although the nearby signal box remains operational).
