Levenshulme South railway station in Levenshulme, Manchester, England, was on the Fallowfield Line, now a cycle path.

History[edit]

The station opened on 2 May 1892, originally as Levenshulme.[1] It was renamed on 15 September 1952,[1] closed to passenger traffic on 7 July 1958,[1] and to freight in 1987. This was one of two stations in Levenshulme; the other, Levenshulme railway station, is still used today.

Restoration of the building started in 2018 to turn it into "Station South", a cycle cafe/bar and co-working space.[2]
