The line from Wellington to Nantwich was closed on 9 September 1963, as part of the infamous Beeching Cuts.

Bob tells us in his book that the volume of passengers never reached an acceptable level. In 1872 a typical day saw only 19 tickets issued at Audlem. The map below shows Nantwich station in 1875. The line from Wellington to Nantwich was closed on 9 September 1963, as part of the infamous Beeching Cuts. Above picture is of the Nantwich Newcastle Road Crossing in the 1960s (courtesy of Tony Evans).

It carried through freight and local passenger traffic until its closure in the 1960s. Market Drayton was renowned for the manufacture of gingerbread, hence the line acquired the nickname the "Gingerbread Line".
