[2013] Click to enlarge.Ryhill railway station served the Barnsley Coal Railway, later the Manchester, Sheffield & Lincolnshire Railway (MS&L), Great Central and London and North Eastern Railway (LNER). The station opened for passenger traffic on 1 September 1882. It was renamed Ryhill and Wintersett on 1 March 1927 and closed by the LNER on 22 February 1930. The station consisted of two flanking wooden platforms with wooden buildings, the main buildings being on the Barnsley bound side, and a signal box just off the end of the Barnsley - bound platform. The platforms were linked by a standard footbridge. The station was located by the junction of Ferry Top, Station Road and Pits Lane. Another station, Ryhill Halt, served the village on the Dearne Valley Railway from 1912 to 1951, about half a mile to the south east.
