Greenfield is a small station on the edge of Manchester, just as the landscape turns into the hills of the Peak District. We only had a flying visit before catching our next train of the day, so it's fortunate that it's only a simple station! The front of the station on the east of the line:

The entrance to the station is up these steps, where there's a small ticket office and access to the platforms:

The entrance leads on to platform 1 just to the rear of the station building:
