Mill Hill railway station serves the Blackburn suburb of Mill Hill, England, 1 1⁄4 miles (2.0 km) west of Blackburn railway station. It is an island platformed suburban station managed by Northern. It was opened by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway in 1884, almost forty years after the line itself. It was built to serve Blackburn's expanding western residential district and several nearby cotton mills.
It is unstaffed, with no permanent buildings other than basic shelters on the platform. No ticket vending facilities are provided, so passengers must buy tickets in advance or from the conductor on the train. Digital information screens and a P.A system are installed to give intending passengers train running information.
Monday to Saturdays, there is an hourly service from Mill Hill towards Preston and Blackpool South westbound and an hourly service to Blackburn, Burnley Central and Colne eastbound. A single morning peak service from York to Blackpool North also calls, along with a corresponding evening peak train to Leeds & York.
There is a two-hourly service in each direction on Sundays.
