Rose Grove sign

Rose Grove, like Hapton just down the line, is another station in the shadow of the M65, serving the western edge of Burnley. The station is accessed only by steps from the road bridge over the line (and the motorway!):

Platform 1, for trains towards Colne, seen from the bridge:

The platform has a minimal wall-less shelter, so best hope that the rain is only falling vertically:
