Cheshire Best Kept Stations

Cheshire is unique.  It is the only county in England that has a Best Kept Station Competition.

Each year Railway Stations throughout Cheshire compete for the coveted awards in this Competition.

The Annual Awards Evening for 2016 was held at The Grange Theatre, Hartford, Northwich on Tuesday 10th January 2017.

Our special guest for the evening was Professor Paul Salveson MBE.

Since its inception in 2003, Cheshire Best Kept Stations have had many wins but the real winner has been the partnership built between the rail operating companies, local authorities, local business and the local volunteer groups - those unsung heroes in the community.

Cheshire’s Best Kept Stations is sponsored by ACoRP, Arriva Trains Wales, Cheshire East Council, Cheshire West and Chester Council, Merseyrail Electrics, Network Rail, Northern, Roberts Bakery, Transport for Greater Manchester, TravelWatch Northwest and Virgin Trains.

Cheshire Crimebeat – the High Sheriff of Cheshire’s Charity – supports youth projects at our stations, allowing young people to make a positive contribution in the community.

Cheshire Best Kept Stations – where everyone is a winner.
