Looking north from Edgerley Road bridge at the site of Cheadle Heath station in February 2005. The point where the fence on the right of the picture is at track level marks the site of platform 1. The supermarket occupies the site of the slow line platforms and the goods yard. In the distance beyond the bridge the line veers to the left. It follows the route of the spur that gave access to the former Woodley to Glazebrook line. The route to Manchester Central had carried straight on but it closed in 1970. Today the single track is used only by freight trains.
