HistoryEdit

The station opened on 25 July 1831 by the Warrington and Newton Railway. It was situated south of Tanners Lane on the east side of Dallam Lane. A two-storey building was provided which housed the booking and railway offices. To the west of this was a railway yard, which contained a goods shed and several sidings to the east. When the Grand Junction Railway opened on 4 July 1837,[1] Warrington Bank Quay opened and Dallam Lane station closed to passengers on the same day. The site was used as a coal yard until the 1960s when it closed completely. The station building is now used as a public house.[2]
