 Stubbins railway station served the village of Stubbins in Rossendale. Opened by the East Lancashire Railway in 1846 on their line from Bury Bolton Street into Rossendale, it closed to passengers in 1972, when the Bury to Rawtenstall service was withdrawn by British Rail. The line remained open for coal traffic until December 1980. The ELR has since reopened the line as a tourist railway, but the station here has not been reinstated.

There is little to see, but it is still a nice little find, nonetheless. The underpass has some interesting tiling . . .
