Monument record MDR496 - Buxworth Railway Station
Type and Period (1)
- RAILWAY STATION (Victorian - 1850 AD to 1866 AD?)
- None recorded
This stone station building is now closed . It is back to front as the railway moved up the hillside after a landslip soon after it opened in 1866. (1) It is notable for being back-to-front on the line. Soon after it was opened in 1867, a landslip caused the valley side to fall into the Black Brook Valley and the railway was realigned from one side of the station to the other. Today it is used as a school's outdoor centre. (2)
