Remains of ramp to southbound platform, Chorlton cum Hardy Station
The railway station at Chorlton-cum-Hardy fell to the Beeching axe and closed in 1967. The buildings and parts of the platforms were demolished shortly thereafter. The line remained open for freight only until 1988. Work was well under way to re-open the line, initially as far as St Werburgh's Road, as part of the expansion of the Metrolink tram network.

Steps and a ramp led down to the southbound platform from Wilbraham Road. Some of the vegetation had been cleared as part of preliminary works to clear the line, which probably accounts for the mangled state of the railings.

A new station has since been opened on the same site, named simply Chorlton.
