SJ9199 : Droylsden Station Junction

taken 48 years ago, near to Droylsden, Tameside, Great Britain

Droylsden Station Junction
Droylsden Station Junction
The former rail junction at Droylsden Station. The path of the dismantled route to Audenshaw and Denton, branching off to the right, can still be seen clearly. The station itself had closed three years earlier, in 1968. Looking at the satellite image on Google Maps, there appears to be very little evidence of the station or junction remaining although the main Manchester-Huddersfield line is still in operation*. The footbridge, from where this picture was taken, has also gone.
