Trains to Croston

Croston railway station sits just 10 miles or so due east of Southport in the little village of Croston in Lancashire. Its one platform is served by the Ormskirk Branch Line that runs down from Preston further north. It was opened by the Liverpool Ormskirk and Preston Railway in the mid-19th century, though today the station and the trains that pass through are operated by Northern. The old stone stationmaster’s house is still intact but were sold off to private investors some years ago. It is a small, unstaffed station with facilities that include platform seating, a small shelter, a help point, and station lighting. There is one direct departure every hour during weekdays to Preston in 16 minutes and one to Ormskirk in 18 minutes.

When you disembark, you’ll find a plethora of things to do. Head to one of the cosy pubs for a craft beer and a bite to eat, get active at the Croston Sports Club, or cast your line into the nearby trout fishery to catch your supper.
