Little Hulton railway station served the village of Little Hulton, Greater Manchester.

History[edit]

Little Hulton station was opened on 1 April 1875 by the London and North Western Railway (LNWR), on the line from Roe Green Junction to Bolton Great Moor Street. It was situated on the north side of the turnpiked Manchester to Chorley road at Little Hulton. The LNWR proposed naming the station "Streetgate" but was overruled by the Little Hulton Local Board.[1]
