Denton! Arriving on the week's only train we nevertheless got off as other passengers got on and saw the Denton flyer off on its way to Stalybridge. Then it was just us on the platform, although as with Reddish South Denton is better looked after than many stations with a much better service!

As you can see from this photo Denton has a bench and planters:

Another planter sits across the end of the usable platform area:

An overgrown area of platform continues beyond the end:

Over the tracks from platform 1 on the other side of the island platform is a disused platform edge from when the station was rather larger:

At the northern end of the station a road bridge crosses the line, and this disused exit from the station can be seen:

A community notice board makes much of the station's poor service:
