The 8D Association

Miscellaneous '8D area' Stations.

These are stations within the 10 mile radius of 8D shed which are not covered in the individual railway line sections. 


Opened by the Cheshire Lines Committee on 22nd June 1870 the station is still functioning today. It is now an unstaffed halt but had over 34,000 journeys either to or from the station in 2010/11. The platform buildings still survive and have been used on a commercial basis for several years. The station serves the village of Delamere and is situated on the edge of Delamere Forest. Which is still a popular attraction for families.
