Passenger statistics from the Office of Rail and Road

Cuddington railway station serves the village of Cuddington in Cheshire, England. Opened in 1869 by the West Cheshire Railway, it is located 12+12 miles (20.1 km) north east of Chester. It has won a number of awards for its gardens, which are maintained by local volunteers.[1]

Facilities[edit]

The station is unstaffed, but as of 2021 has a ticket machine on the Manchester-bound platform for purchase of tickets on the day, and collection of advance purchase tickets. Like neighbouring Delamere, the main building still stands and has been converted for private use (in this case as an art gallery). Standard waiting shelters are provided on each platform, with train running information offered via CIS displays, timetable poster boards and a pay phone. Step-free access is officially only possible to the Manchester-bound platform[2] although there is a crossing at the western end of the platform which is frequently used.

Services[edit]

There is a basic hourly service each way on weekdays (with a few peak extras as far as Stockport) to Manchester Piccadilly & Chester and every two hours on Sundays. On Sundays, the northbound services are extended past Manchester Piccadilly to Southport.[3]
