Broadbottom Station 1965

Photograph © Ben Brooksbank.

This photograph was taken on 5th May 1965 by Ben Brooksbank.

The view is eastward from Moss Lane towards Hadfield and Sheffield on the then ex-Great Central Manchester to Sheffield (Victoria) main line. It was called 'Mottram & Broadbottom' until 1954. The station is now served by local trains from Manchester (Piccadilly) to Hadfield and Glossop; the main line to Sheffield having lost its through passenger services in January 1970 and its freight in July 1981.

You can see how it looks 45 years later on Hyde Daily Photo.
