Brinnington railway station serves Brinnington in the eastern part of Stockport, Greater Manchester, England.

It is a relatively new station, opening on 12 December 1977,[1] by British Rail, on the line originally built by the Sheffield and Midland Railway Companies' Committee in 1875 between New Mills and Manchester London Road (now Piccadilly).

Facilities[edit]

The station has a manned ticket office at street level, which is opened through the day on weekdays (06:30-20:50) and on Saturdays until early afternoon (07:20-14:25). Outside these times, tickets must be bought on the train or prior to travel. Platform-level amenities are limited to waiting shelters, timetable posters, digital CIS displays and bench seating. Automated train announcements are also provided. Access to the platforms is via footbridge and inclined ramps - these have steps, but can be negotiated by wheelchair users with assistance.[2]

Service[edit]

It is served by the DMU service operating between Manchester Piccadilly, Marple and New Mills Central with through services to Sheffield via the Hope Valley Line.

Monday to Friday daytimes there are two trains per hour to Manchester Piccadilly and two per hour towards New Mills Central.[3] One train every second hour continues through to Sheffield. On Saturdays, the basic frequency remains the same but eastbound services run alternately to Sheffield and Rose Hill Marple. During the evenings, the frequency drops to one train per hour each way and on Sundays trains run every two hours each way (most through to Sheffield eastbound).
