Red Rock railway station stood in Red Rock, a hamlet between Standish and Haigh,[1] originally in Lancashire now within Greater Manchester, England. The railway station was on the Lancashire Union Railway line that ran from Blackburn via Chorley to Wigan before eventually joining the St Helens Railway.

The former down waiting room at the station was owned and used by the residents of Haigh Hall from the station's inception until the 1940s.[2] The station buildings and goods yard now form part of a private residence.
