Hundred End railway station was previously a stop on the West Lancashire Railway, fully opened in 1878, which ran between Southport and Preston, carrying both passengers and cargo from the fields of the area to be sold at town markets.
Low passenger numbers later led to the railway's decline and its closure was assured by the Beeching Axe in 1964. The station house has since been demolished but the train track can be followed along a footpath that stretches towards Banks.
The area has similar geography to that of Banks.
There is an enclosed salt marsh that is used for grazing cattle and the marshes are managed by the RSPB.
Hesketh Moss Methodist Church is a small chapel which was built by the local farmers of the hamlet, the nearest Church of England Church are in Hesketh Bank and Banks.
The hamlet does not have a school, but children usually attend primary schools in Tarleton, Mere Brow, Banks and Hesketh Bank. The nearest Secondary School being Tarleton High School.
Hundred End Farm, built in 1837 is the oldest building in the hamlet. The largest house is Ribble Hall which is a modern mansion built by Godfrey Crook. He was responsible for taking away the train tracks and the gravel beds when the West Lancashire Railway line closed, he built Ribble Hall on land near the former Hundred End railway station.
