Kenyon Cutting

Resource Type: Image | Posted on 28th October 2011 by Liam Physick

One of the images donated to Metal by Eric Shenton. Here is a view of the cutting for the now-defuct Kenyon Junction station, which is about a mile away from this viewing platform. The station, on both the Liverpool and Manchester Railway and the Bolton and Leigh Railway, opened as Bolton Junction in 1831 and changed its name in 1843. It was rebuilt in 1883 in response to criticisms of its poor facilities and missed connections. It closed to passengers on 2nd January 1961 and entirely on 1st August 1963: in 1969, the line serving Leigh was closed down
