Looking north from the site of Ann Street Station in February 1984 taken from a viewpoint forward from that of the picture above. Nearly two years after the line was lifted at this location work had begun on the construction of a new road. In turn this road would be completely rebuilt as Watkinson Way in the mid 1990s. In 1984 however there was still much to see of the St Helen's and Runcorn Gap Railway including boundary walls and in the distance the bridge that carried Warrington Road over the line.
