Lea Green railway station is in St Helens, Merseyside, England, being approximately three miles south from the town centre near the suburb of Clock Face. The station is on the northern route of the two direct Liverpool to Manchester lines, which is the former Liverpool and Manchester Railway. Northern Rail operates the station with Merseytravel sponsorship displaying Merseyrail signs. Constructed in 2000 the station has a park and ride car park, a modern CCTV security system and 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. Thatto Heath railway station on the Liverpool to Wigan Line is approximately two mile to the north west.
