Newtown station bridge

You will have no doubt noticed the scaffolding and workmen busy on the platform bridge at Newtown station.

The bridge and stairs are 157 years old and were in need of some TLC to restore them to their former glory.

The Grade-II listed Victorian structure was originally built in 1863, six years after the station opened and as with the bridge at Central station is a beautiful reminder of our railway heritage here in New Mills

Access to both platforms is maintained via Albion Road and work is expected to take approximately 4 months.
