DISUSED STATIONS EP2 | Tottington, Bury England



Disused Station (1).png

All aboard this specially chartered steam train along the Bury – Holcombe Brook Line only calling at Tottington Railway Station today, sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Disused Stations is a brand new project by World of Xploration, the mission is to document all the disused stations in the United Kingdom and make videos of the closed stations showcase their current status and to unleash their stories and secrets during their operating days.

In episode two we will take a look at Tottington which was opened on 6 November 1882 on the Bury to Holcombe Brook  Line. The station was situated on the corner of South Royd Street and Kirklees Street in Tottington. With access down the platform by stairs from a bridge on Kirklees Street

The station was closed 5 May 1952 to passenger traffic but the line through station remained in operation until 19 August 1963 when the line finally closed to Freight traffic.

A part of the line is now the Kirklees Trail which passes through most of the stations including Tottington. I suggest you keep your eyes open and look underneath the undergrowth as you will find railway relics everywhere.

Here’s the video you been waiting for

I can suggest another article to read which relates to this post. The Kirklees Trail day out photo album where you can see some pictures of Tottington Station today.

This Service terminates Here, Thanks for traveling with Mike on World of Xploration service.
