Taking you further on Sundays with Irwell Line

3 weeks ago Tue 7th Jul 2020

We're extending our routes on Irwell Line to Burnley and Blackburn every Sunday from 19 July!

Instead of finishing in Rawtenstall, Irwell Line 481 will take you all the way to Blackburn and Irwell Line 483 will take you further to Burnley, just as they normally do during the week.

You can find the new timetables below

Irwell Line 481 & 483  - Blackburn or Burnley to Rawtenstall then Bury

The 483 will take a slightly different route than the weekday buses;

  • From Burnley, after serving Waterfoot Turning Circle, we’ll run via Burnley Road East, Turnpike, Church Lane, Staghills Road, Newchurch Road, Bank Street, St Mary’s Way, Bacup Road, and James Street to Rawtenstall Bus Station and then as the normal route to Bury
  • From Rawtenstall Bus Station, we’ll run along Lord Street, then via Bacup Road, Rawtenstall Gyratory System, St Mary’s Way, Newchurch Road, Staghills Road, Church Lane, Turnpike, Burnley Road East, and Waterfoot Turning Circle where we’ll pick up the usual route to Burnley

You can use this map to get a better grasp on what's different.
