Matlock Bath Railway Station consists of a Swiss Chalet station building with a similar ancillary building to the north. The building is now an antique shop, though pay trains still run and stop here (1974). It has overhanging eaves, curiously paned windows and herring-bone patterned bricks. All the up buildings have now been demolished. Biddle says there were originally five chalets, three and two, "plus a short length of detached awnings". (1, 2)

It is a single-storeyed timber framed building with herringbone brick nogging, an advanced gabled wing at the centre, gabled ends with bold verges and overhanging, bracketed eaves, and tiles. The footbridge and platform canopy have been removed and the station is no longer in use. (3)
