Daisyfield railway station was a railway station that served the Daisyfield area of Blackburn, Lancashire.

History

The station was opened by the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway in 1872 and closed by British Railways in 1958. When the line was reopened as far as Clitheroe in 1994, Daisyfield remained closed; however the station signal box is still in operation to supervise the adjacent level crossing.

It also acts as a fringe box to Preston power signal box, controlling the line towards Clitheroe and the single line via slotted signals, requiring both the signalman at Preston and Daisyfield, to give a release before a train can use the single line. The disused platforms are still visible from passing trains.
