Trains to Littleborough

Hugging the banks of the Rochdale Canal, trains into Littleborough station, on the Calder Valley Line between Todmorden and Rochdale, is the last station on the line within the Greater Manchester area. The usual off-peak service includes trains every half hour to Manchester Victoria and, in the opposite direction, to Todmorden, continuing alternately to Leeds (via Dewsbury) and Blackburn (via Burnley Manchester Road). In the evenings and on Sundays, the Leeds trains go via Halifax. Littleborough station opened in 1839 when the town was making a name for itself as a prosperous industrial mill town. Nowadays, the station is mainly used by commuters, but it's also important as a transport hub for visitors coming to enjoy watersports on the nearby Hollingworth Lake and make the most of opportunities for walking and other outdoor activities in the beautiful South Pennines. The main shopping streets of Littleborough town centre are less than five minutes' walk from the station.
