Daresbury railway station was a station in Moore, Cheshire, on the Birkenhead Joint Railway between Runcorn and Warrington. It was named after the village of Daresbury, Cheshire, about a mile away, as Moore had a second station on another line. It was open to passengers between 1850 and 1952. It continued to be served by goods trains until full closure in 1965.[1] [2]
