Chequerbent railway station was a railway station in Westhoughton, to the south-west of Bolton, Greater Manchester, England. It was situated on the line between Bolton and Leigh. The station was opened in 1885 and closed in 1952.
The line of the former Bolton and Leigh Railway opened for goods traffic in 1828 (passenger services followed in 1831) In 1885. the London and North Western Railway (LNWR) built deviations to avoid the steep inclines, which would mean steam locomotives could haul the trains for the whole journey.
All this work meant that there needed to be a resiting of the Chequerbent railway station. The old station was closed in February 1885 and the new station opened on the same day.
