Trains to Chorley pull into the heart of this historic market town, with the West Pennine Moors in the background. It's an arresting sight and one that passengers have enjoyed since rail arrived in Chorley in 1841. The present-day station is a modern 1980s build, and is linked with Chorley Interchange bus and coach station situated across the road. A small and quaint station, it only serves two lines, ferrying Lancashire commuters to Preston, Manchester, Blackpool and Bolton. Chorley's markets have been famous for centuries. Today they still sell artisan produce by local cheesemongers, bakers and farmers - and they're also the perfect place to sample the famous Chorley Cake. If you've packed your hiking boots, head out to Anglezarke Moor to see the Neolithic burial mounds Pikestones and Round Loaf. Alternatively, the tranquil Astley Park - 43 hectares of park and woodland - offers an easier stroll and is only ten minutes from the station.
