The delightfully named Belle Vue station sits on the line between Manchester Piccadilly and New Mills. It doesn't have a great deal - just two platforms and shelters connected by a road bridge to the station's north. From the bridge we can see the platforms:

Information signs tell you which way to go on the bridge:
