Moorside is relatively little used by comparison with other stations on the line, so it's not surprising that it's lacking in facilities. Here's the station building on the road bridge over the line:

Inside the station building is a small concourse and ticket office, although the ticket window was (perhaps unsurprisingly) closed when we visited. Here's the concourse looking back out the front entrance:
