Daisy Hill

Collected date 17/09/16

Daisy Hill was the first station of our final day in the Manchester area. It's on the Wigan line in the suburbs of Bolton and was very quiet when we visited... This is the station's front, facing on to Leigh Road:

The platforms are to the east of the bridge. To the west we can see the line continue on under a pipe:
