Ansdell and Fairhaven is also a DfT category F2 station that was opened in 1872.
Despite sharing part of it's name with the Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club, Lytham is not the nearest station to the club; that falls to Ansdell and Fairhaven, which is adjacent to the course.
St Annes-on-the-Sea was also opened by the Blackpool and Lytham Railway in 1863.
In the past, when Blackpool Central was the town's main station, through trains between Blackpool and London Euston ran via the Fylde Coast line and called at St. Annes on the Sea.
Another north-west coastal resort station which has now lost through services to/from Euston is Grange Over Sands.

A tad confusing with two named stations shown emboldened above, so I will make an association with the second one....
