The original Liverpool and Manchester Railway station at Barton Moss opened in 1832 and was replaced on 1 May 1862 by a new one 1.205 kilometres (0.749 mi) due east.[1]

This second station was opened by the London and North Western Railway; it duly passed to the London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) at the 1923 Grouping.

The LMS closed the station on 23 September 1929.[1]
