The Mid Cheshire Line

The Mid Cheshire Railway Line passes through the beautiful, scenic mid Cheshire countryside linking Chester and Manchester. It is a vital route for commuting to work and accessing local services but also has many opportunities for leisure journeys for shopping, outdoor pursuits and cultural activities.

The Line offers a low carbon way to explore Cheshire towns and villages such as Knutsford, Northwich, Hale and Altrincham, access scenic walks from every station, enjoy good food and real ale and explore all that the cities of Manchester and Chester have to offer.

The Mid Cheshire Railway Line is operated by Northern and provides rail links to the national rail network at Manchester, Chester and Stockport and with the Metrolink Tram network at Altrincham.

Explore this website to find out more about each station and the local attractions, events on the line and the Mid Cheshire Community Rail Partnership.
