    Mayfield Station (Disused) Manchester 11-12

    With very short notice, I was invited to join Zer081 and a couple of others to explore the abandoned station in Manchester! I had tried many times over the years to get in myself but always failed - until this night!
    Even though it can be seen by the many thousands of travellers who disembark at Manchester Piccadilly, you could still class this as a 'Hidden Gem!'
    With the opening of the Styal line in 1909, the increase in passengers arriving became too much for the then named Manchester London road station. So Mayfield was constructed adjacent with it's four lines linked to the main network in 1910.
    In 1960 it was closed to passengers for the last time and then gained a rebirth in 1970 as a parcel depot.
    The demise of this beautiful building was forged when road haulage was favoured over rail and in 1986 - it closed.
    There is talk of the site being flattened and flats constructed so typically - a structure that survived the war (Direct hit) and many years of the Manchester rain - gets destroyed by developers and their wallets.
    I went again a few days later to do a model shoot but a bunch of chavs turned up and we decided to cancel! But not before I got some daytime pictures!

    Beneath the platform - a huge storage area!

    Some offices! This support style was common throughout the building!
