Rose Hill sign

Rose Hill is the second station in Marple, on the west side of town. It's on a branch of the Hope Valley Line, which used to continue down to Middlewood on what is now a cycle path. Now it's just a terminus with a couple of trains an hour.

The station has two entrances, one from Stockport Road on a bridge over the line to the north, and one via the car park to the west of the line. From Stockport Road, a ramp runs just behind this fence down to the platform:

From the path one can see this old telegraph pole:

The fence is adorned with murals a bit further down:

The ramp leads down to the side of the station building, whose identity is in no doubt with the large number of totems:

The rear of the station building is very plain:
