In the meantime, there are other attractions to discover, enjoy and explore in the area.
For all Amazing Women, there is a Ladies Hairdressers at the former Station House on the railway station.
Whistles Hair and Beauty Salon is based in the Old Ticket Office and if you look inside you will see they have retained the old wooden ticket draws from bygone days.
Across the road from the station is The Goshawk pub which has its own extraordinary Amazing Woman story to tell.
Take a left turn outside the station and walk down Station Road for 100 yards and you will see on the right a church – St Cuthbert by the Forest.
You cannot miss its standalone campanile bell tower.
Back in the 1920’s there was an influx of Irish farm workers and the landlady of the Station Hotel persuaded a curate from St Werburgh’s to come out and say Mass in a pavilion behind the hotel but it had to coincide with the Mid Cheshire Line train times.
After the war, the landlady purchased the land next to the hotel and St Cuthbert was opened in 1953.
