Dinting sign

Dinting sits in a triangle of lines, once a junction with the Woodhead route under the Pennines but now with curves leading to termini at Hadfield and Glossop. In the car park, looking at the front of the station building that faces on to the Hadfield platform:

Opposite platform 1 is this well-maintained disused building from when this side of the station had two platforms:

A way out sign in the shrubbery shows that this side of the station was in use in the days of the BR corporate identity:

At the end of platform 1 it joins platform 2 in the crook of the vee between the two platforms. Looking north between the two curves:

Back in the car park between the two platforms, we look at the rear of the station building on platform 2, which still houses a ticket office and waiting room:

Sadly the information display, like many around here that try to use a mobile phone data connection to get information, was broken:

Walking to the far end of platform 2 we look back at the curve:
