Romiley sign

Romiley station serves the Romiley area of Stockport and has platforms elevated above ground level as the line crosses the Stockport Road. The front of the red brick station building, facing onto the road:

This plaque next to the entrance marks 150 years of the station, which was opened in 1862:

The street is on the platform 1 side of the station, for trains towards Manchester. There's an entrance ahead leading to the steps up to the platform, and a ramp on the left:
