Croston sign

We cycled to Croston from Burscough Bridge and found the village celebrating its annual Coffee Day, a local carnival in which all the village shops and pubs take part. So we decided to sit on the grass in the sunshine and watch bands go past before returning to the station. The station itself is a small single track halt at the north end of the village.

As you can see from the bridge, there is a second disused platform at Croston. Here it is at platform level:
