Hag Fold sign

Hag Fold is a new (well, 1987) station on the Atherton line, so it doesn't have the same architectural characteristics as they do. The platforms and shelters have rather more of a temporary feel, being made of wood and perhaps showing their age a bit.

The station building's look is rather more modern, although the look is spoiled rather by the palisade fencing surrounding it:

The station building is on the platform 1 side of the line, with a bypass path to the side for when the station building is not open.

If you can navigate the spikes and it's open, there's a ticket window:

The ramp leads almost directly into the wooden shelter:

From the housing estate behind you can see the rear of the wooden shelter:

To get to platform 2 for trains going in the other direction, it's under the road bridge:

The shelter is painted black and looked a bit like it had suffered fire attack at some point:
