Ramsgreave & Wilpshire railway station

Ramsgreave and Wilpshire railway station

Ramsgreave and Wilpshire is a railway station on the Ribble Valley Line that serves the villages/suburbs of Ramsgreave and Wilpshire which lie just north of Blackburn in Lancashire, England. The station is 4 km (2¾ miles) north of Blackburn railway station.

The present station was built 400 yards south of the original Wilpshire station which served the Ribble Valley Line before it was closed just before the Beeching Axe in 1962. When the line was re-opened in 1994 a new site had to be found, due to the construction of houses which blocked access to the old station. The platforms which served as the old Wilpshire Station can still be seen today.


The station is operated by Northern Rail and is served by a daily hourly service to Clitheroe to the north and Blackburn and Manchester Victoria to the south.
