Horsforth railway station is a railway station in West Yorkshire, England. It is on the Harrogate Line 5.75mi north west of Leeds station and the final stop in the Metro regulated area towards Harrogate. The station is located on the Cookridge side of the Moseley beck but has a Horsforth postcode (LS18).The station (accessed from Station Road, Horsforth) serves Horsforth, Cookridge and Tinshill and was opened in 1849. In 1969 it was unstaffed and all the buildings demolished as part of the general retrenchment of railways in West Yorkshire at that time. The nearby North Eastern Railway signal box survived until 2013.Growing traffic congestion in Leeds promoted an increased traffic from Horsforth in the 1990s, and in 2002/3 Horsforth station was extensively redeveloped to better cater for the greater number of passengers. New waiting rooms were built on both platforms, along with a ticket office on the Leeds (Up) platform which opened on 16 July 2003. The car park was extended, using land formerly occupied by the two sidings; these still remain, in a truncated form. The station is staffed from 06:10 - 19:00 Mon - Sat and 09:30 - 16:30 Sun. Ticket machines are also provided, along with a long-line P.A system and digital information screens. Step-free access is available to both platforms.
