Liverpool Road Station Society. In the alcove above this plaque the original Liverpool Road Station bell was probably hung. The Bell was rung to warn passengers of the departure of trains. It was later replaced by a clock. The present clock was installed as a permanent mark of recognition for the work of the Liverpool Road Station Society in drawing attention to the historic Liverpool Road site and thus ensuring its preservation. In 1983 the Society became an integral part of the new Friends of the Greater Manchester Museum of Science and Industry.
