Stubbins railway station served the village of Stubbins in Rossendale. Opened by the East Lancashire Railway in 1846 on their line from Bury Bolton Street into Rossendale, it was situated next to the junction of the lines toward Accrington and to Rawtenstall and Bacup, but only had platforms on the latter route.

It closed to passengers in 1972, when the Bury to Rawtenstall service was withdrawn by British Rail, although the line through it remained open for coal traffic until December 1980. The ELR has since reopened the line as a tourist railway, but the station here has not been reinstated.

However the ELR hopes to restore (and then re-open) this Junction station within the near future, possibly as part of a plan or two to extend westwards to as far as Rossendale Golf Course (close to Helmshore).
