Parbold station was a short cycle ride from Hoscar just down the line, and is right at the centre of Parbold village. However, for pedestrians the level crossing is no bar as a subway crosses the line next to the road. Looking south along the road at the level crossing. The station platforms are to the right of the barriers:
