Preston Junction

Preston Junction was known as Todd Lane Junction from 1952 until closure in 1968. As a youngster I was taken from Huncoat to Todd Lane on the Accrington based Cravens DMUs many times for family visits and got to know its island platform well. After 1968 trains ran through for a further four years until full closure. It has since become the Preston Junction country park as seen in this view towards Preston from the site of the former overbridge and station entrance. Map Reference SD 553264
