The pictures were taken at Ramsbottom station, Rossendale. The station was used for location shots in the BBC's series Born and Bred. Formerly known as the Bury, Manchester and Rossendale Railway, the line was renamed the East Lancashire Railway in 1846. A railway preservation society was formed in 1968 and the line was reopened in 1991. The property is owned jointly by Bury and Rossendale Councils.
