Marker Post, Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway
Marker Post, Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway
This stone post is near the route of the former Liverpool and Bury (later Lancashire and Yorkshire) Railway between Bradley Fold and Moss Shaw, The only markings on it are the letters LYR which presumably are for Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway. The other face of the stone is completely blank.

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).
