The Anonymous Widower

HS2’s Depot North Of Crewe

This article on Rail Technology Magazine is entitled Maynard: HS2 will not deliver full potential unless east-west links improved.

The article relates to a debate in the House of Commons, where Paul Maynard, who is the Minister for Rail, reiterated the Gpvernment’s commitment to Northern Powerhouse Rail (NRP), or HS3.

He then went on to say, that the site of the depot in the Crewe area would be at Wimboldsley.

This Google Map shows the area.


  • The line drawing out Wimbordsley
  • The West Coast Main Line going North-South across the map.
  • Crewe is a few miles to the South.
  • The town in the North-East corner is Middlewich.

They certainly seem to have chosen an area which is mainly agricultural land.
