Changes to bus services affecting Mellor & Mellor Brook

, November 28th 2017


Service 25A – Mellor Brook – Mellor – Blackburn – LCC Lft 2

  • This new Service 25 will restore the link between Mellor, Brockhall and Clitheroe every 2 hours. Combined with Service 25A to Mellor Brook, the service between Mellor and Blackburn will continue to run hourly. This will replace the existing Service 15 Blackburn – Mellor – Mellor Brook/Brockhall.
  • Rotala Preston Bus will operate this service on behalf of LCC


As far as I can gather, from 11th December 2017, bus route 25 will be extended to Clitheroe. The current service 25 operates between Blackburn Rovers Football Academy at Brockhall and Blackburn bus station via LANGHO – The Rydings, SALESBURY – Bonny Inn, WILPSHIRE – Mayfair Crescent and St Marys College, Shear Brow, BLACKBURN. (see timetable)

I can find no details of the proposed new service 25A timetable to be operated from 11 December 2017 but it seems it will begin and terminate in Clitheroe and run 3 services per day.

The new service 25A will operate between MELLOR BROOK and BLACKBURN replacing the old service 15  which will continue to operate between MELLOR BROOK – Feilden Arms and Blackburn Bus Station via MELLOR – Millstone, LAMMACK – Hare and Hounds and St Marys College – Shear Brow, BLACKBURN until 10th December (see timetable). I can find no details of the proposed new timetable to be operated from 11th December 2017

LCC’s official leaflet

A second phase of service enhancements is proposed to be implemented on 12 February 2018.
