Bamber Bridge station was built as part of the Blackburn / Preston Railway and opened on 1st June 1846. Situated 8 ¼ miles from Blackburn the station used to have a very busy goods yard moving products from the local cotton mills, in particular from Dewhursts Cuerdon Mill who had their own private sidings.
The station is situated right in the middle of town and there is a good selection of shops adjacent to the station.
Worthy of note is the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway signal box sited next to the level crossing and the original East Lancashire railway station building which has recently been sympathetically restored by Lancashire County Council and now houses the South Ribble Pensioners’ Association.
