Built in 1842, Wilmslow station in Cheshire is a main junction on the Crewe to Manchester Line, running several key Aviva Trains, Northern Rail and Virgin services to Cardiff, Manchester Piccadilly and London Euston. Wilmslow station was once home to one of the most complex signal interchanges in the country. Built as part of the 1959 electrification of the West Coast Main Line, the state of the art signal box served virtually the entire railway from Crewe to Manchester until it was demolished and replaced in 2006. The small, picturesque town makes up part of the ‘Golden Triangle’ of affluent northern towns, which also includes Alderley Edge and Prestbury. Wilmslow’s reputation as a haven for the wealthy stretches back to the Victorian era, and to this day the town is home to many notable celebrities, including several high profile footballers, actors and musicians.
