Newhey Station and the LYR Cotton Warehouse
Newhey Station and the LYR Cotton Warehouse
Newhey Railway Station was opened in 1863 by the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway (later taken over by the London & North Western and then London Midland and Scottish Railways in 1922 and 1923 respectively). The station was closed in 2009 in preparation for the new Metrolink Tramway. Most of the old station was demolished and has since been replaced by the Metrolink stop/station seen here.

All that remains from the former railway goods yard, is the "Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Cotton Warehouse" behind the wall of the new Metrolink station.
