Walkden celebrates 120 years

June 29, 2008

Wednesday July 2nd marks the 120th Anniversary of the first passenger service from Walkden, and FOWS will be celebrating the historic occasion from 7.30am to 9am in the station booking hall:

  • grab one of 120 goody bags that FOWS will be giving out to celebrate the day
  • enter our raffle and for just 50p you could win a return ticket for 2 adults and 2 children on any Northern service
  • join the Birthday Cake cutting ceremony at 9am
  • take the chance to talk to members of FOWS and representatives from Northern Rail and British Transport Police.

Join us to celebrate this long-serving, long-neglected amenity that’s finally experiencing a renaissance in appearance and passenger numbers !

Please check out our website for more information about the history of the station.
