CRL - Community Rail Lancashire

Station
Bromley Cross

Bromley Cross station is situated three miles from Bolton on the line to Blackburn and Clitheroe. Some of the original station buildings survive and the station clock is worthy of note, as is the signal box. The station has a large free car park and there is an overspill car park close by at the Media Arts College.

The name Bromley Cross derives from an old monument in the form of a cross known as Kershaw’s Cross which was situated on the edge of the West Pennine Moors. The name Bromley comes from a local family who were major landowners many years ago. There are still prehistoric remains on the hills around Bromley Cross, and a stone circle on nearby Turton Moor. There are good established walks into the West Pennine Moors from this area.
