Heritage on The Ridge - New from Old

Each September thousands of volunteers across the country invite you to experience local history, architecture and culture. All for free.

This year's festival will run between 13-22 September.

At the northern gateway to The Sandstone Ridge, the old Railway Station at Helsby and Alvanley, will be taking part in this year's festival of 'Heritage Open Days'.

The former Grade-II listed railway waiting room at Helsby and Alvanley Station is now 'Beer Heroes', a craft beer Tap Room.

Helsby and Alvanley Railway Station opened in in 1870 and closed to passengers in 1964.

The North Cheshire Rail users Group successfully campaigned to re-open the station and have worked on its improvement since 1997, winning many awards.
