Clitheroe railway station serves the town of Clitheroe in Lancashire, England. The station is the northern terminus of the Ribble Valley Line operated by Northern Rail and is 16 km (9.9 mi) north of Blackburn. The station forms part of the multi-award winning Clitheroe Interchange.
The original station opened on 22 June 1850. It was replaced in 1893/4 by another approximately 200 metres (200 yd) to the north. The station closed to normal services on 10 September 1962 but remained in use for special services until 7 February 1971. The special services resumed on 14 May 1990, and the station was fully re-opened on 29 May 1994 when passenger services began again from Blackburn.
The station has since become an award-winning bus and train transport interchange. The bus station, known as the Clitheroe Interchange, is the terminus for bus connections bringing passengers from towns and villages in the Ribble Valley area to the train service to Blackburn and Manchester.
There is generally an hourly service daily from Clitheroe to Blackburn and Manchester Victoria with extra trains during peak hours.
This Service also calls at:
- Ramsgreave & Wilpshire,
- Entwistle (Request Stop),
- Bromley Cross,
- Hall i' th' Wood,
- Salford Crescent
- Salford Central.
Due to overcrowding at certain times, there are plans from the Department for Transport to increase services from 1tph to 2tph, however the funding for this may not be available.
