The site of Euxton railway station and the Royal Ordnance Factory
The site of Euxton railway station and the Royal Ordnance Factory
In the heyday of the surrounding Royal Ordnance factory, Euxton (pronounced x-ton not youx-ston) station was heavily used by workers travelling to and from work from the surrounding towns of Leyland and Chorley. The Royal Ordnance management offices are still present at the right of the picture and form a business park (now called Xton business park [groan]), the factory covered the whole area to the left of the picture. The station itself has been demolished (centre of the picture), although there is talk about building a new station here.
