It was warm and sunny when we reached Thatto Heath station, so it was a very pleasant place to spend a few minutes waiting for a train back towards Liverpool.

The station is on the line to Wigan, and has two platforms, both accessed by ramps from the road bridge which crosses the line at the station's east. The entrance to platform 1 on the south side of the line:

Halfway along platform 2 is what looks like it might once have been the end of a different bridge crossing the line:
