Mill Hill Station is situated on the western outskirts of Blackburn. It was the last of the stations to be built on the East Lancashire line opening in 1887. The industrial area around the station was home to many cotton mills several of which still stand although not now used for cotton weaving. The large goods shed still standing adjacent to the station is testimony to the large amount of goods traffic that was once generated from this area.

The world famous Netlon Mesh system was developed in an old cotton mill in Mill Hill by the late Brian Mercer. Mercer from a long established cotton manufacturing family invented the Netlon process in the early 1950s and received the Queens award for Technology Achievment.

There is a small shopping street to the left of the station entrance.
