I know this isn't strictly about Wigan as such, but does anyone remember Golborne North railway station which was located on the A573 (Wigan Rd). According to disused stations the station was primarily used more for goods than as a passenger station, unlike Golborne South station.
I've mentioned the station to people who lived in Golborne at the time, including my dad who lived there for a few years, and they don't seem to remember it.
Here's the info about it:
The map shown on the link above indicates that the line crossed over the road and over the mainline, but the b/w photo appears to show that the station was at a raised lever on a hill or bridge, so I presume there was once a bridge there where the bungalows are now situated?
