     Original course of the Cromford and High Peak Railway. The bridge has long been removed, but the northern approach embankment and a hundred yards or so of trackbed were still easy to see from the road on 13 December 2017. The image ends at this bridge, but the original CHPR station was on this alignment on a sharp curve immediately off left of shot.

    This station was on the Cromford and Peak Forest line, originally built to link the Peak Forest canal at Whaley Bridge to the Cromford Canal at Cromford, since a canal could not be constructed across the hilly countryside. In 1895 the L&NWR built a link from the line to their line at Buxton and an extension at Parsley Hay to Ashbourne. I understand this station dates from that period. It was closed in 1954.

    This part of the line remains open as a freight-only line serving the quarries south of Buxton.
