    Burton Point -- journey's end

    (I have used Burton Point station by a regular service train, near the end of its life as a passenger station. Our family hails originally from the Chester area: some living in the city, some in an out-of-the-way rural location whose nearest station was Burton Point; during a holiday stay with family members still in the region [both parts], I as a child, with my mother, once travelled from Burton Point to Chester [Northgate].)

    Whilst Burton Point was indeed the final station on this journey, prior to it was Sealand Rifle Range Halt.
