Pemberton station on a September evening, and my ability to keep my camera still enough was apparently waning more than the light levels, so some of my photos are a bit blurry. Fortunately there's not a great deal to see. The entrance to the station is from Billinge Road which runs to the north of the line before crossing it shortly to the west. The entrance to platform 1 is down this ramp:

Pemberton platform 1 approach

A slightly overgrown garden sits in the vee of the ramp, with a big Pemberton plaque:

Looking west we can see the bridge which carries the road over the railway and affords access to platform 2:

We have to return to the road to get to the other platform. The entrance is from this bridge over the railway:

From the bridge we look east at the platforms:

Down a ramp and we're at platform 2:
