Broadfield railway station served the district of Broadfield in Heywood in Greater Manchester, England from 1869 until October 1970, when the station was closed and passenger services between Bolton & Rochdale were withdrawn by British Rail. The line through the station has since been reopened by the heritage East Lancashire Railway, although the station itself remains disused.
