Aughton Park railway station is a railway station in Aughton, Lancashire, England, on the Ormskirk branch of the Northern Line of the Merseyrail network 11½ miles (19 km) north east of Liverpool Central.

History[edit]

The station is below ground level built into a cutting. Opened by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway, the station became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The line then passed on to the London Midland Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.

When sectorisation was introduced, the station was served by Regional Railways on behalf of the Merseyside PTE until the privatisation of British Railways.

Facilities[edit]

The station is staffed throughout the day (like all Merseytravel stations), with the ticket office open from start of service until the last train has called throughout the week. There are shelters on both platforms and a pay phone on platform 1. Train running information is provided by automated announcements and digital display screens. No step-free access to either platform is available.[1]

Services[edit]

Trains operate every 15 minutes on Monday to Saturday daytimes between Ormskirk and Liverpool Central, and every 30 minutes at other times (evenings and Sundays).[2]
