Description

Now known as Lancaster Greaves, it was almost certainly not known as this when open as a passenger station. This was the original terminus of the line from Preston and was left on a short branch following the opening of the Lancaster and Carlisle Railway in 1846 and closed to passengers in 1849.

The goods facilities remained in use and some passenger trains may have used these following 1849. The stub branch closed in 1967.
