Sunny Wood Halt was a stopping point on the Bury to Holcombe Brook railway line from 1905 until the line closed in 1952.

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 Sunny Wood, 2 miles (3.2 km) from Bury, which opened on 3 July 1905. It closed with the end of passenger services on the line on 5 May 1952.[1][2]
