Wigston Magna railway station was built by the Midland Railway in 1857 on its extension from Leicester to Bedford and Hitchin.

Originally simply Wigston, it was later renamed Wigston Magna. Passengers services finished in 1951, while goods services continued it was unstaffed in 1962, finally closing in 1964. The station houses remain and are occupied by a commercial business.[2]

Magna Park[edit]

Magna Park is a distribution centre adjacent to the A5 road to the west of the town of Lutterworth in the English county of Leicestershire. Developed in phases by Gazeley Properties in the early 1990's, the estate was built on the site of the former RAF Bitteswell. The airfield had been the location of early jet engine tests carried out by Sir Frank Whittle.

As a result of this all the roads on the site are named after aircraft, i.e. Hunter Boulevard, Wellington Parkway, Vulcan Way, etc.

The site is accessible from the A5 via Junction 20 of the M1 motorway and Junction 1 of the M69 motorway.

Controversy[edit]

Controversy rages in Lutterworth about how to manage the traffic flows emanating from Magna Park and the nearby M1 and A5 trunk roads. Some 3,000 heavy goods vehicles pass through the town every day and pollution levels are amongst the highest in the country. The Town Council has established a task group to try to resolve the issues surrounding the proposed Lutterworth Western Relief Road (or bypass) following extensive publicity in the local press.[3]

These problems would be eased by the rebuilding of the Great Central Main Line which would almost certainly provide goods access to Magna Park were it ever to emerge. [citation needed]

Boilerplate source list for diagrams[edit]

The diagram on this page has been created and /or enhanced using these sources and methods;

Sites

Ordnance Survey Get-A-Map [5]

Put the place name into the search box and track the line methodically for junctions, river crossings, etc. Sometimes you need to use the name of a bigger place nearby and work to the desired location using the navigation device. Work down joining lines to the next station to check that you have the right railway.

Google Earth [6]

Google Earth can be downloaded for free from here and used to check stations, junction layouts, etc. A good double check on the OS site.

Railscot [7]

Useful for small diagrams giving the order of stations and where one line crosses another.

Sub Brit Disused stations [8]

Accessible source of old OS maps featuring the area around a former station and the disposition of junctions there.
