It is one of four railway stations along the Ribble line from Blackburn to Clitheroe reopened in the mid 1990s by Lancashire County Council, having been closed by the British Railways Board as an economy measure in 1956, six years before the local passenger service over the line ceased. The station has maintained transport links with existing bus services and has its services provided by Northern Rail.
