Colne railway station has long served the small mill town of Colne near Pendle Hill in Lancashire. It opened in the mid-19th century as a stopping off point on the extension of the Leeds to Bradford line towards Skipton. Several decades later, the important station was reconstructed adding on engine sheds which served the Midland Railway and the Lancashire to Yorkshire Railway. At its peak, there were serves to many parts of Northern England including Leeds, Liverpool, Bolton and Manchester, though the station suffered in the ‘60s during the Beeching cuts leaving just the service between Preston and Skipton and later much of the old station was demolished. Today, the small station and its single platform is managed by Northern with hourly direct departures to Blackpool in 1 hour 45 minutes, Preston in 1 hour 11 minutes and Burnley Central in 13 minutes. It’s an unstaffed station, but there are facilities for purchasing tickets before boarding and timetable displays and announcements.  

After disembarking in Colne, you’ll be just a few minutes’ walk from its bustling high street packed with cosy pubs, cafes and shops. There are some lovely walks in nearby Alkincoats Park just 5 minutes from the station. Alternatively, lace up your boots for some serious hikes in the Yorkshire Dales National Park just 10 kilometres or so north.
