Town Green station is a small station on the Ormskirk branch. The main station building is on the east side of the line:

The side of the station building has a parking place for police vehicles only, not because the station is a crime hotspot but because it houses a police station:

A road bridge crosses the line a little way north of the station. Since the bridge has both a road bridge and a parallel footbridge, there is an odd gap through which you can see the track:
