Pendleton Bridge railway station was a railway station in Pendleton, Salford built on the Manchester and Bolton Railway, between Salford and Clifton Junction.[1] The station was accessed from Station Street, just west of Broughton Road (A576). It was unusual in having a canal, the Manchester, Bolton & Bury Canal, running alongside the station behind the up (southbound) platform.

This station has been known by at least two names: originally opened as Pendleton Bridge in September 1843,[2] it has also been known as Pendleton Old, and by the time of its closure on 5 December 1966, was known simply as Pendleton.[2] The other station in Pendleton, near the church, was known as Pendleton Broad Street until Pendleton Bridge closed.

The station no longer exists.
