Hickleton and Thurnscoe Halt was a small railway station on the Hull and Barnsley
Railway line between Wrangbrook Junction and Wath-upon-Dearne. The halt was built
to serve the mining villages of Hickleton and Thurnscoe, near Barnsley, South
Yorkshire and was situated in the centre of Thurnscoe at the point where the line
crosses over the main Barnsley road. Hickleton village was situated over 0.5 miles
(0.8 km) away.

The station was situated 3 miles (4.8 km) south of Moorhouse and South Elmsall and
consisted of a single wooden platform with a single storey "Double Pavilion" style
wooden station building. The platform surface was of gravel and the station opened
on 28 August 1902 and closed, along with the others on the line, on 6 April 1929.

The line was controlled by two standard H&B style signal boxes named "Hickleton
Station" and "Hickleton Colliery".

Immediately south of the station was the entrance to Hickleton Main Colliery where
the H&B shared sidings with the Swinton and Knottingley Joint Railway line.
