Cheshire Lines Committee
Mossbridge railway station was located on Downholland Moss at Moss Lane, Haskayne, Lancashire, England. The Southport & Cheshire Lines Extension Railway (SCLER) opened Mossbridge on 5 April 1886 as "Barton & Halsall".
A short distance north of the station the line crossed Downholland Brook by a substantial bridge.
The station closed in 1917, along with all other stations on the extension line, as a World War I economy measure. Unlike all the others, however, Mossbridge never reopened to passengers.
This part of the SCLER now forms part of the Trans Pennine Trail.
