About Whatstandwell Station
Opened by the Manchester, Buxton, Matlock and Midlands Junction Railway in 1849, though it was not listed in the timetable until 1853. The first station was "Watstandwell Bridge" (sic) north of the 149-yard (136 m) Whatstandwell Tunnel, behind the Derwent Hotel. The original platform still exists, though the area was used as a goods yard when the present station was opened in 1894. It then became "Whatstandwell".
A little way north was High Peak Junction at the base of the former rope-worked incline of the Cromford and High Peak Railway.
