Station Name: SHAWFORTH
[Source: Alan Young]
1963 1: 2,500 OS map. Shawforth station is still named and its platforms and buildings are marked, but it is identified as ‘disused’, and this description has been appended to the railway too. The coal sidings east of the line are still shown, but the approach track appears to have been severed between the booking hall and the station buildings. As late as 1967 the OS 1: 10,560 map showed the double-track railway between Facit, Shawforth and Bacup as being in situ but disused; the rails had been removed in 1964.
