Whelley railway station
Whelley railway station was in Whelley, Wigan (now in Greater Manchester, England) on the Whelley Loop section of the Lancashire Union Railway. The station is believed to be one of the shortest lived passenger stations in the country, opening at the beginning of 1872 and closing in March of the same year. The goods yard remained open until the Whelley loop closed in the 1970s. There is a now school called Canon Sharples C.E Primary School next to the loop line.
