Chronology 

Top

This line was originally a tramway operated by horse opened in the 1790s. The line later came into the hands of the Wrexham, Mold and Connahs Quay Railway  which in turn became part of the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway. The latter company was renamed as the Great Central Railway on extension to London and itself became part of the London and North Eastern Railway. This company became part of British Railways who closed the line.
