Alderley Edge railway station serves the large village of Alderley Edge in Cheshire, England. The station is 13¾ miles (22 km) south of Manchester Piccadilly on the Crewe to Manchester Line.
Opened by the Manchester and Birmingham Railway, then absorbed by the London and North Western Railway, it became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway during the grouping of 1923. The line then passed on to the London Midland Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.
When sectorisation was introduced, the station was served by Regional Railways on behalf of the Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Executive until the privatisation of British Railways.
The line was electrified in 1960 (as the first stage of the West Coast Main Line electrification project) - since then, the station has acted as a terminus for some local services from the Manchester direction. Both platforms are bi-directionally signalled to facilitate this and there are turnback sidings provided close to the station to allow empty stock to be stabled clear of the main line.
Alderley Edge station has two platforms, both of which have a small station building with a wooden canopy. The building on platform 1 houses a waiting area and ticket office, but on platform 2 the building is not open to the public. The two platforms are connected by a footbridge and an adjacent road bridge at the southern end of the station. There are two ticket machines on the western side of the station, accessible from platform 1.
Vehicle access is available to the western side of the station but only for drop-off purposes; for longer stays a car park is provided to the east.
