(Merseyrail Wirral Line)
Meols was one of the original stations of the Hoylake Railway, the predecessor to the Wirral Railway. It opened in 1866 and became part of the Wirral Railway in 1883. In 1938, by now operated by the London Midland Scottish Railway the line through Meols was electrified. The station was rebuilt at the same time, the Art Deco shelters and main station building dating from this rebuild .
The station has cycle storage, indeed it has such since 1938 - back then this was quite a rarity!  It is planned to improve accessibility at the station by adding lifts to both platforms.
