near to Willaston, Cheshire, Great Britain

Hadlow Road Station, Willaston.
Hadlow Road Station, Willaston.
The GWR and LNWR opened a branch line from their main line at Hooton to Parkgate on 1.10.1866. Three stations were provided at Hadlow Road, Neston and Parkgate. On the 19.4.1886 the line was extended to West Kirby. Further stations opened at Heswall, Thurstaston, Caldy, Kirby Park and West Kirby. The line was a single track branch with passing loops at various points including Hadlow Road. It served the small village of Willaston until its closure in 1956. The line survived until 1964 for goods services.
In the early 1970s the route of the Hooton - West Kirby Branch was chosen to create Britain's first country park the Wirral Country Park. Hadlow Road Station was restored as a typical 1950s village station and it remains as such today.
