Full Description

In 1870 the Midland Railway opened the Brampton branch off its main Leeds to Derby line. This branch line ran from Chesterfield to Brampton, linking the expanding industrial area along the Hipper with the main line. Map evidence shows that it originally ran as far as New Brampton Colliery, but that by the end of the century it had been extended another 500m or so further west to serve several potteries. (1-3)
