Lea Green railway station is in St Helens, Merseyside, England, around three miles from the town centre near the suburb of Clock Face. It is on the northern route of the Liverpool to Manchester Line (the former Liverpool and Manchester Railway). It is operated by Northern Rail. It opened in 2000, and has a Park and Ride car park and a modern CCTV security system linked to a small booking office.
An earlier Lea Green station closed decades earlier, a few hundred metres away - the present station's location would more accurately be described as
Marshalls Cross. It is about 2 miles from Thatto Heath railway station on the Liverpool to Wigan Line.
