This site is now a car park at the beginning of the Sett Valley Trail, which follows the course of the former branch from New Mills Central (closed in the early 1970s). Only the buttresses and retaining walls now mark the site of the former station and sidings . (1)
In the heyday of the branch, opened in 1868, up to 18 trains left here every day for Manchester. It closed in 1970. In the 1900s, a temporary railway ran from here, through the village and up Kinder Valley, to bring supplies to workmen to the site of Kinder Reservoir. (2)
