Description : Cloy Halt - a stop on the Wrexham & Ellesmere railway. It was opened on the 30th June 1932 as Cae Dyah Halt. There was no siding, just a very short platform on the 'Up' side - timber front, back-filled with ash, with barely enough room to carry the standard issue GWR corrugated shelter and the huge sign board 'Cloy Halt'. It closed on 10th September 1962 (Pratt, D, 1999, 125-6).
