Hale sign

Hale station is in a suburb of Altrincham and boasts a station with some particularly fine canopies over its platforms. The front of the station building faces west:

The entrance doorway is decorated and has a lantern above it:

Looking north along the front of the station building we can see the veterinary surgery, which claims to be the old station house:

From the car park next to the station house is an entrance on to platform 1, from where we look north along the line and notice the substantial length of disused platform on the other side:
