Cromford Station

Cromford Station close to Cromford Mill, Masson Mills and Cromford Canal is a delight and the striking waiting room has been converted into a holiday cottage.

Cromford Station lay on the line from Derby via Matlock to Buxton, services on which was severely cut by the Beeching Report of 1963. The line is now operated by East Midlands Trains with services from Nottingham to Matlock (via Derby).

The waiting room gradually fell into disuse and has been painstakingly restored as holiday accommodation.

The stone building dates from the 1860s and was designed by GH Stokes in a French Chateau style. The waiting room was probably the original station building and became a waiting room on completion of a new station in 1874.

The building features on the cover of the record Some Might Say by Oasis.
