Burnley Barracks is a small single-track station on the East Lancashire Line. It once had buildings and two platforms but now it's just a single platform with a shelter. The station sits between two road bridges over the line: Junction Street to the east, and Padiham Road to the west. The entrance is at the point where these roads meet:
