Knowles Level Crossing Halt was a stopping point on the Bury to Holcombe Brook railway line, from 1905 until 1918.

History[edit]

The line from Bury to Holcombe Brook had opened on 6 November 1882, and originally there were three intermediate stations. A service of steam railmotors was introduced on the line in July 1905, and four more intermediate stations were opened at the same time; these small stations, or halts, included one at Knowles Level Crossing, 3 miles (4.8 km) from Bury, which opened on 3 July 1905. It closed on 1 April 1918.[1][2] The halt was on the south side of Shepherd Street.
