Goostrey residents clean up station

Goostrey railway station facelift

A GROUP of village enthusiasts is working hard to improve the look of Goostrey Railway Station by sweeping platforms, clearing weeds and tending tubs of plants and, in doing so, have uncovered a unique piece of history.

Friends of Goostrey station, known as FOGS, has found a large piece of sandstone, which was originally the keystone of the road bridge over the track.

It was removed so the bridge could be raised to allow electric trains to pass underneath.
