Station Walks, Halmer End
Built on the site of Halmerend station which only operated from 1880 to 1931, although freight traffic continued on the line until 1962.
The Audley branch railway
The 'Audley branch', between Alsager Junction and Keele, closed to passenger traffic in April 1931, and to all traffic in January 1963. The section between Alsager and Merelake has been designated the 'Merelake Way', and is managed by Cheshire East Council. The stretch between Bignall End and Halmer End is a popular walking and dog-exercising route, and is always referred to locally as 'the lines'.
