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. There is a ticket machine, which passengers must use to obtain a promise to pay or purchase their ticket before boarding the train.

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 six trains each way on Sundays.
