Path at the side of the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway
Path at the side of the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway
This section of footpath runs from Ainsworth Road, towards Moss Shaw, along the side of the former Liverpool and Bury (later Lancashire and Yorkshire) Railway route.

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 is now a footpath although it has been built over in several places. The new housing development here, being the latest.
