Bredbury train station dates from 1875, when it was built by the Sheffield and Midland Railway Companies' Committee. It serves the town of Bredbury in Greater Manchester. Despite modernisation in 1976, the station still retains some of its original features, including the stationmaster’s house and a footbridge over the line which was built in 1916.
Bredbury itself is a suburban town with a few interesting landmarks and features. The National Library for the Blind is located here, as are the ruins of Arden Hall, which local legend claims once hosted Oliver Cromwell and was the site of a battle between the Cavaliers and the Roundheads. Today, the suburban town is mainly residential, though it does feature some attractive countryside around the slopes of Werneth Low and the nearby rivers.
