Many thanks to Jon Bion of HeswallMagazine.co.uk for sending me this great old image of West Kirby train station.
There are more tracks in operation as the lefthand side track is, I presume, the Hooton Line that once ran along what is now the Wirral Way. View this old aerial photo of West Kirby to see how it looked. And for some more old photos of the station go here.
As the image says, the view is from the Bridge Road bridge …and not a single budget supermarket in sight!
If you’d like to send in some great photos of West Kirby, past and present, then email them to news [ at ] westkirby [.org] …sorry about the silly formatting but I get enough spam email as it is.
