Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Longsight railway station was built by the Manchester & Birmingham Railway Company. The first station opened in June 1840. Its original location was on Stockport Road (A6) near its junction with Slade Lane in Longsight, Manchester, England. Its creation coincided with the then new Belle Vue Zoo. Its positioning had the unfortunate effect of bisecting part of the zoological gardens. After protests from the zoo owners MBR relented, and relocated the station to the northern end of Kirkmanshulme Lane. The new station opened in May 1842.show more
