The station was originally to the west of the river bridge, but was moved here when the branch line to Ripponden and Rishworth was opened in 1886. This was intended to be a new main line over to Lancashire, but was not completed and the branch line was uneconomic due to competition by trams and was closed to passenger traffic in the 1930s. Meanwhile a large station had been built, now mostly demolished to make way for a modern factory. However part of the 19C building still exists on the right, and the modern station with canopies over the platforms is on the left.
