Dodworth railway station serves the village of Dodworth, in the Metropolitan Borough of Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England. The station is 4.25 miles (6.84 km) west of Barnsley on the Penistone Line between Huddersfield and Sheffield.
The present Dodworth station was opened on the site of the original, built by South Yorkshire Railway and opened on 1 July 1854, adjacent to the level crossing which, took the main Manchester road through the village. The crossing and the access to the local colliery was controlled from a signal box, of M.S. & L.R. hipped-roof design, set by the crossing and which was demolished by a derailment on 24 January 1955. The rebuilt box was a brick built, flat roofed affair.
The station was rebuilt by the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway in the last quarter of the 19th century in their "Double Pavilion" style. This station was closed on 29 June 1959.
Part of the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive's plan for the line was to reopen the stations at Silkstone (actually at Silkstone Common) and Dodworth. Dodworth was re-opened as a single platform station, with car parking facilities from the commencement of the new timetable in May 1989.
On Mondays to Saturdays, trains operate hourly towards Huddersfield and Sheffield and two-hourly on Sundays.
