Report: Mayfield station- Manchester - 2011

Ok -another sucessfull eploration, this time Mayfield station in Manchester. Apologies for the sheer number of pictures - we cut it down a tonne, but we just cant bring ourselves to get rid of any of the remaining ones.

The station was opened in 1910 to serve the overflow of Picadilly station but ended its life as a station in 1960,. Since then it has been used as a parcel depot by the Royal mail and used as a set in a film, but currently its fate is uncertain.


We started early for this one, and after some brief misshapps, we got underway.

The station tracks open into the platform, with boarded up rooms, and the passage down to platform 5.

Climbing through the rooms we can see that they have taken a lot of damage across the years

Steps lead up to where there was once a footbridge out of the station

and from the roof you can see over onto the platforms of Piccadilly Station.

The huge iron pillars are holding well, but the wooden structures have not had such a happy fate.

The above room room was found across a large and rotted wooden floor heading towards platform 5

Our next stop was thee platform itself now that it had got a little lighter
