the station at Irlam on the line that ran from
Wigan Central to Manchester Central.
The stonebuilt abutment at the top of the picture is where
the railway line passes over Liverpool Road, the B5320,
which was formerly the A57. There is still a station there,
on the Liverpool to Manchester line.
A lovely idea and a piece of history .. If a bit distracting (for me) driving past though, nice to look at when sauntering past at leisure.
