Chapeltown Central railway station was situated on the former South Yorkshire Railway's Blackburn Valley line between Ecclesfield East and Westwood. The station which was also known as Chapeltown and Thorncliffe was intended to serve Chapeltown, South Yorkshire, England, although about 1 mile (1.6 km) from its centre. It also served the works of Newton, Chambers & Company, one of the largest industrial companies in the area.

The station consisted of two staggered platforms linked by a footbridge and was rebuilt in the M.S.& L.R.'s Double Pavilion style in the 1880s.

Closure to passengers came on 7 December 1953 and to all traffic in April 1954.
