Blackrod station was the day's first, and it's a small station in Horwich, Greater Manchester. It's got some relatively recent access improvements, with a footbridge being replaced with ramps up to the road bridge.

From the road bridge looking north at the station site:

A road leads from the bridge crossing the line to the station. From this road we can see both platforms and the ramp leading down to platform 2:
