|THE MIDDLEWICH RAIL LINK CAMPAIGN IS A SUB-COMMITTEE OF THE MID-CHESHIRE RAIL USERS' ASSOCIATION|
|Middlewich Station in 1989|
Welcome to Middlewichstation.co.uk, the new website for the Middlewich Rail Link Campaign, which has been putting forward the case for a passenger train service for Middlewich for twenty years now,
That case has been proven time and time again, and our task now is to see to it that the powers that be act on the information which MRLC and the Middlewich Railway Steering Group have accumulated with the help of highly respected railway consultants over the years.
The name of this site has been carefully chosen so that when our aims are achieved and Middlewich once more has a railway station and a passenger train service connecting it to the rest of the railway network (and
thus to the rest of the country) the site can, without having to change its name, become the official site of The
Friends of Middlewich Station (or whatever the support group for the station decides to call itself once the
station is up and running).
That journey from campaigning group to friends of a thriving and well-used railway station begins now, and we hope you'll want to come along for the ride.
Information on the Sandbach-Middlewich-Northwich railway and its past, present and future, will be added to this site as the days, weeks, months and years go by.
To start with, here are some links to articles about Middlewich Station in years gone by on our sister site
The Middlewich Diary:
MIDDLEWICH STATION IN THE 1920s
MIDDLEWICH STATION IN 1968
MIDDLEWICH STATION IN 1972
(follow the links on the Middlewich Diary to other local railway related articles)
Here's a link to the 'Projects' page on the Mid-Cheshire Rail Users' Association website, which has further
links to documents relating to the Middlewich line re-opening proposals, including the consultants' report (pdf document)
(Editor's note: As this site is brand new, you will appreciate that we are still experimenting with the formatting
and layout, with the object of making the site easy to read and navigate. Please bear with us until things settle down. Thank you!)
