Woolfold Railway Station served the district of Woolfold in Bury from 1882 to 1952.

History[edit]

The Bury and Tottington District Railway opened from a junction to the north of Bury to a terminus at Holcombe Brook on 6 November 1882. Among the original stations was that at Woolfold, situated 1 mile (1.6 km) from Bury.[1]

The station closed when passenger services were withdrawn from the Holcombe Brook line on 5 May 1952.[2][3]
