HistoryEdit

The station was opened on 1 April 1875 by the London and North Western Railway (LNWR), on the line from Roe Green Junction to Bolton Great Moor Street. It was situated on the north side of the turnpiked Manchester to Chorley road at Little Hulton.

The LNWR proposed naming the station Streetgate but was overruled by the Little Hulton Local Board.[2]

The line and station closed to regular passenger traffic in 1954, with the last train calling on Saturday 27 March.[3]

By 2015 the trackbed through the station site formed part of National Cycle Network Route 55.
