Shaw and Crompton Metrolink Station
Shaw and Crompton Metrolink Station
Metrolink Bombardier trams standing at Shaw and Crompton Station on the day that services on the Oldham line were extended from Mumps to Shaw and Crompton. The tram on the right hand side is waiting to set off towards Oldham, Manchester and St Werburgh’s Road. Those on the left are "on test".

The station at Shaw and Crompton stop is to the south of Beal Lane. A single faced outbound platform is on the west side of the line. The double sided inbound platform will be on the east side of the line, its western face will be for through trams towards Rochdale and its eastern face for terminating trams which will not cross Beal Lane.

The footbridge and former railway station platforms to the north of Beal Lane have been removed, as has the barrier level crossing and its control box; the crossing now has traffic lights instead.

The large building to the side of the station is Briar Mill (SD9408 : Briar Mill, Shaw), one of several former cotton mills in the area. It was built in 1906.
