Dewsbury station sign

Dewsbury, east of Huddersfield was the day's first station that wasn't just a few platforms and shelters - always a welcome change! The back entrance to the station is just to the west of the line, and is through this archway:

Dewsbury platform 1 entrance

The entrance ramp leads to one end of the footbridge, just to the right of these steps down to platform 1, for trains northwards to Leeds:

The steps give out onto platform 1, seen here looking north:

An old footbridge (admittedly one with lifts at either end) spans the tracks, seen here from platform 2 opposite:

A glass waiting area has been constructed just north of the footbridge under the canopy on platform 2:
