Great Harwood railway station was located in the south-east side of Great Harwood, Lancashire, England on Station Road, which still remains. The station was on a branch line (usually known as the Great Harwood loop) of the East Lancashire Line from Burnley to Blackburn via Rose Grove, Padiham, Simonstone and Great Harwood.
The line between Padiham and Rose Grove opened in 1875. West of Padiham it opened two years later as a result of difficulties in constructing the embankments between Great Harwood and Simonstone in the vicinity of Martholme Viaduct.
It was closed on 2 December 1957 and the station later demolished. The site has been converted to an industrial estate. The line through the town and further west has been converted to a cycle way and footpath linking with the Leeds and Liverpool Canal west of the town.
