Sunday trains go to Chester and Manchester Piccadilly and require a change for other destinations (but watch out for Rail Replacement Buses - so check your journey times!).

At Helsby station can be seen, a set of now extremely rare "Co-Acting" signals - mechanical signal enthusiasts should visit to see these in action. The best time is the departure from Platform 4 for Warrington( Bank Quay) at 16.14. 

Iron Age people constructed a fort on Helsby Hill and it's easy to see why - the summit is 123m above sea level and offers magnificent views over the Mersey.

On a clear day the Liverpool skyline is visible with the outlines of the Anglican and Metropolitan Cathedrals standing out.
