Newhey Metrolink Station
Metrolink Bombardier M5000 tram number 3003 leaves Newhey tram station, heading in the direction of Oldham. The Newhey tram stop is situated to the south–east of Huddersfield Road; it has two side platforms.

Of interest behind the opposite platform is the former "Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Cotton Warehouse"; all that remains of the former Newhey Railway Station and goods yard, a reminder of when this was part of a busy rail route and "cotton was King" in these parts. It probably dates from the late nineteenth or early twentieth century as the station first opened in 1863 and the LYR was taken over by the London & North Western Railway (LNWR) in 1922 (then the London Midland and Scottish, LMS, the following year).
