Collected date 10/09/16

Reddish North sign

And we're off, starting another station collecting holiday in Manchester, with Reddish North. Easier than Reddish South just down the road as it actually has more than one train a week!

A small road leads down from Gorton Road to the station and its car park:

The front of the station building, which is still in use although the ticket office had already closed by the time we visited on a Saturday afternoon:

A timber merchant occupies a yard next to the station, which includes this railway building:

Steps lead up from the car park to Criterion St:

The entrance to the station from the car park when the station building is closed:

The gate leads on to platform 1, where we look east:

The rear of the station building, which has a stubby wooden canopy and a fading mural about railway safety:

Walking along to the other end of platform 1, we look west along the line as it goes first under something (an elevated pipe?) and then under Gorton Road:

Looking back east at the footbridge from the end of platform 1:

The footbridge joins the two sides of the station. Looking east from the footbridge:

The shelter sits in an area which perhaps once housed a larger structure:

Looking east from the end of the accessible part of platform 2 we see a stretch of disused platform:
