Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Millers Dale railway station was a station situated in Millers Dale in the Peak District. It was built in 1863 by the Midland Railway on its extension of the Manchester, Buxton, Matlock and Midlands Junction Railway from Rowsley. It served an important junction where passengers for Buxton joined or left the trains between London and Manchester. It was originally to be called "Blackwell Mill," but, in the end, was named "Millers Dale for Tideswell." For such a rural location it was unusually large - indeed it was one of the largest stations on the line, and was one of the few stations in England to have a post office on the platform. Millers Dale also sent dairy, agricultural and quarried products from the surrounding areas to the major cities. Whilst also serving local towns and villages - notably Tideswell, Taddington and Wormhill - much of its activity was concerned with the connecting service to and from Buxton.show more
