Town Green railway station is a railway station in Town Green, Aughton, Lancashire, England, situated on the Ormskirk branch of Merseyrail's Northern Line.

Location[edit]

It is located at the junction of Town Green Lane and Middlewood Road with pedestrian and vehicular access from Middlewood Road. The booking hall opens onto the south bound platform and the Aughton police station now occupies rooms opening off the booking hall. To the Liverpool end of Town Green station on the Ormskirk bound side and behind the signal box there used to be a small loop line with a very low white painted station which was the platform used by Royal trains when the Royal family were visiting Knowsley Hall - the home of Lord Derby.

Services[edit]

Trains operate every 15 minutes (Monday to Saturday daytime) between Ormskirk and Liverpool Central, and every 30 minutes at other times.
