Burnley Barracks train station sits in the market town of Burnley, on the East Lancashire Line. It is an unstaffed station and a request stop; passengers wishing to board or leave the train here need to make their wishes known to the train staff. Burnley Barracks achieved television fame in 2016 when it appeared in Paul Merton’s Secret Stations on Channel 4. It was originally a terminus station, opened for just four months in 1849 while extension works took place on the line. It reopened in 1852 in response to growing demand from the surrounding area. The barracks that the station was named for closed in 1898 and, later, the demolition of local housing and a decline in local population meant that the station’s use declined. Today, an hourly service runs from Burnley Barracks on weekdays and a two hourly service on Sundays.  

Popular direct services from Burnley Barracks train station include Colne and Blackpool South. The fastest journeys to these destinations take 16 minutes, and 1 hour 30 minutes respectively.
