The ELR line from Clifton Junction to Accrington opened in stages between 1846 and 1848. Radcliffe Bridge Station was opened on 25 September 1846, although it would appear from the classified advertisement in the Manchester Guardian that the permanent station building on the southbound platform was not commenced until 1847. It was a single storey stone building with paired round-headed windows and hipped slate roof. The station closed on 7 July 1958 and was demolished.
