Bredbury station was the first of a day's exploring, and a bit of a mixed bag. The station dates from 1875, but was modernised in the 1970s so the old station master's house is the oldest thing about the site now:

That photo of the station house was taken from the steps of the new building:

At the top of the steps, the entrances to the station, either through the building or a side gate:

At the western end of platform 2 the footbridge joins the two sides of the station:
