It is situated on the electrified Merseyrail Liverpool to Wigan City Line, 8 3⁄4 miles (14.1 km) northeast of Liverpool Lime Street. The station, and all trains serving it, are operated by Northern Trains, however the station is branded Merseyrail using Merseyrail ticketing. It was opened by the London & North Western Railway in July 1891.
Though run by Northern Trains, it is within the Merseytravel area and thus has a ticket office that is staffed throughout the hours of service each day (05:50-23:30 Mondays to Saturdays; closed Sundays). This is located in the main building on platform 1, along with a waiting room whilst there is a shelter on platform 2. Train running information is provided via customer help points, PIS screens and timetable poster boards on each platform. Step-free access is available to both platforms via ramps.
