Whalley railway station serves the village of Whalley in Lancashire, England. The station lies on the Ribble Valley Line 7 1⁄4 miles (11.7 km) north of Blackburn. The station has two platforms, slightly offset from each other. It is unstaffed, with shelters on each platform. Immediately beyond its eastern end, the line crosses the River Calder on a 678 yards (620 m) long, brick viaduct of 48 arches.
The station opened in 1850. It was closed in September 1962 by the British Transport Commission, but reopened with the rest of the line in 1994.
There are no ticket buying facilities at the station, these must be bought on the train, or prior to travel. However, there are customer help points on both platforms, and timetable information posters are provided. Step free access is only available on the Manchester bound platform.
On Sundays in the summer, one or two trains operate from Preston or Blackpool North along the Ribble Valley Line via Clitheroe to Hellifield, and onwards towards Settle and Carlisle. These also run in winter but terminate at Hellifield, where connections for stations to Carlisle can be made.
