Adlington (Cheshire) railway station serves the village of Adlington in Cheshire, England.

It was manned for many years but is now unstaffed. The station building is privately owned and there is no longer a ticket machine, so passengers must purchase their ticket on the train or at their destination.

History[edit]

Opened by the London and North Western Railway, it became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The line then passed on to the London Midland Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948. When Sectorisation was introduced, the station was served by Regional Railways until the Privatisation of British Railways.

Service[edit]

From 14 December 2008 trains operate on an hourly pattern, terminating at Stoke-on-Trent (southbound) or Manchester Piccadilly (northbound). Some early morning/late night services originate/terminate at Macclesfield.[1]

There are five trains each way on Sundays.
