Bamber Bridge

Bamber Bridge: Looking east towards Blackburn from Bamber Bridge station in September 1978 as a pair of Cravens DMUs pass on the Preston - Colne route. The buildings at the end of the platforms on either side of the level crossing gave access to a pedestrian subway. The subway was filled in and the associated structures demolished in 2005/6. The signal box still stands but nowadays controls only this crossing and another at nearby Hospital Inn.
