Lying nestled in the valley between Bakewell and Matlock sits Darley Dale station. The first station to be built at this site was in fact on the opposite side of the level crossing and was constructed in 1849. This was demolished and replaced in 1873 by the current buildings that also benefited from a footbridge and a goods yard.
