Brinnington is a small station to the east of Manchester, dating from 1977 and with fairly spartan facilities to match. Still, it does have a station building with a ticket counter:

From the footbridge we can look east at both platforms, with platform 1 on the right for stations towards Manchester and platform 2 on the left for trains heading the other way towards Sheffield:
