RAINHILL STATION RENOVATION
Network Rail has finally applied to St Helens Council Planning Department for permission to renovate our historic Rainhill Station. The work will involve many replacement parts including parts of the canopy, the roof, the entrance steps and the retaining walls.
Much of the work has involved ordering specially made parts to the exact specifications of the original parts wherever possible, and have been agreed at every step of the process with the Conservation Officer.
Local residents and commuters have sometimes wondered if ever the work would get started - hopefully the work will commence without any further delays.
