Lockwood railway station is a railway station in Huddersfield, England. It is situated 1.5 miles (2 km) south of Huddersfield station on the Penistone Line between Huddersfield and Sheffield. It serves the Lockwood district of Huddersfield, and services are provided by Northern.
The station comprises a single side platform alongside the single-line of the railway, although the remains of a second platform alongside the site of the former second track (removed in 1989) are still visible.
To the south of the station, the line to Sheffield passes over the valley of the River Holme by an impressive 476 yards (435 m) long stone viaduct to Berry Brow. Below the 122 feet (37 m) high structure is the Huddersfield Rugby Union Club ground at Lockwood Park, which was formerly a Bass Brewery. The former Meltham branch line branched off the main line just before the viaduct. This line closed to passengers in 1949 and to freight in 1965. To the north, the route passes through a short tunnel then crosses another large viaduct across the River Colne before joining the main line at Springwood Junction.
