Flowery Field railway station serves the Flowery Field area of Hyde, Greater Manchester, England. It is 7 miles (11 km) east of Manchester Piccadilly on the Manchester-Glossop Line. The station is managed by Northern.[1]

The station was opened in 1985 and is mainly a wooden structure, similar in design to Godley railway station, which is also on the Glossop Line.[2] The station was opened by British Rail.

As part of the failed Manchester TIF bid, the station would have been refurbished with CCTV, real-time passenger information and additional seating and shelters.[3] The bid failed after residents of Greater Manchester voted against the congestion charge.[4] However, funding was secured from Transport for Greater Manchester in 2011, for the installation of CCTV, Customer Information Screens, a Public Announcement System and Help Points.[5]

Services

There is a half-hourly daily service to Manchester Piccadilly and to Hadfield (with extra trains during weekday peak periods). Trains operate hourly during the evening.[6]
