Route of Former Railway
Route of Former Railway
Looking along the route of the former Liverpool and Bury (later Lancashire and Yorkshire) Railway. This view is looking in the direction of Radcliffe (Ainsworth Road and Black Lane) just to the east of Radcliffe Moor Road.

The Liverpool and Bury Railway was formed in 1845. In 1847, it was incorporated into the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway and from 1922, until nationalisation, was part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway.

The line between Bolton and Bury was closed in 1970 and part of the route, as here, is now a footpath although it has been built over in other places (LinkExternal link - Heywood Advertiser).
