In recent years it has been transformed by the Friends of Westhoughton Station into one of the most attractive train stations in North West England. The volunteer group has cleared away rubbish, planted flower beds, and installed ornaments, statues and artwork. It’s well worth visiting just to see the improvements that have been made.
