About Cromford Station

Originally known as "Cromford Bridge", it was opened by the Manchester, Buxton, Matlock and Midlands Junction Railway in 1849.[2] This is one of the few stations on the line that has been preserved and is a Grade 2 listed building. It is said to have been designed by G.H.Stokes, son-in-law of Joseph Paxton. It is believed that Stokes also designed Station House (built in 1855), the extremely ornate former Station Master's residence opposite the station on the side of the hill as well as the ornate villa style waiting room, on what was the 'up' platform. According to English Heritage,[3] this is the original station building. The present station building on the opposite (down) platform was added by the Midland Railway at a later date
