Dating back to 1900, but still in use until fairly recently in the small (and  popular) village between Bolton and Blackburn, the station is certainly in need of upgrading, but does offer plenty of potential for a quirky property in the centre of the village. Indeed, there is planning permission to convert to a house.

Inside, you’ll find the original reception/office with ante room off leading to two large prison cells, complete with secure doors, locks and timber beds. The reception office also retains the original wooden reception counter and desk set into the bay window. There’s also three large bedrooms, kitchen/diner, lounge and utility room, plus a garage, drive and enclosed yard with outbuildings.
