1930 1: 2,500 OS map. The facilities at Bacup station are basically unchanged since the map of 1892. The Ross mill now has railway sidings. Street tramways now offer competition either side of the railway: the route on Church Road (west of the station) goes to Rawtenstall while to the east along Rochdale Road the tramway serves Britannia, Shawforth, Facit, and all points to Rochdale. Of the Facit Branch stations only Shawclough & Healey is distant from this tram route.
