Kearsley railway station serves the Greater Manchester town of Kearsley and the villages of Stoneclough, Prestolee and Ringley, in the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton, in North West England. It was originally named Stoneclough.
The station was staffed until the early 1990s, however the arson attacking of the station building just below platform level saw an end to this arrangement.
From Kearsley, there is an hourly service northbound to Wigan Wallgate and southbound to Rochdale via Manchester Victoria until early evening (the last departures are just after 18.45 each way). The only service which runs after this time is the 23:11 to Bolton and Wigan Wallgate.
There is no Sunday service.
