This post has been saved – unwritten – as a draft since I started this series of posts. The plan was to catch a train to Edge Hill one weekend, take a look around and some photos and write something interesting for the blog.
That hasn’t happened.
Instead I find myself with just a dozen posts before reaching 125 and no time to spare to visit my Edge Hill Station in the way I’d originally planned. Instead yesterday evening while in the vicinity I did a “drive by” photo shoot.
When I turned up the station was deserted – the ticket office closed and trains passing through without stopping on their way to Lime Street. For a station with such a history it’s a shame to see it so underused but there is perhaps still hope for it.
Last year one of the station buildings dating from 1836 was converted into a space for use by Metal, an “artistic laboratory to champion the need for continual investment in artistic investigation and the development of innovative ideas”.
Alas at 7pm on a Sunday evening it was closed, but at least that gives me a reason to get off at Edge Hill next time I’m passing through.
