Lea Green sign

Lea Green lies to the west of St Helens, and is a modern station dating from the millennium with the usual huge car park and zig-zaggy ramps we have come to expect from such things.

The station sits just west of the A569 where two bridges, one for traffic and one for pedestrians, cross the line. To the north of the line is the large car park and this station building:

The platforms themselves are in a cutting, accessed by either steps or a long twisty ramp. This is the entrance to platform 1:
