Chinley train station lies at the edge of Derbyshire just 18 miles or so east of Manchester. It was originally constructed in 1867 by the Midland Railway company to extend their line down to the Midlands and create a track all the way to London. By the early 20th-century, it was moved across town when new tracks were built making it an important junction between Manchester, Sheffield and London. After the nationalisation of railways, many of the lines that passed Chinley closed and the station train traffic went into decline. Today, regular and express trains services every other hour pass both the station’s two platforms taking commuters along the Hope Valley line to Manchester Piccadilly and Sheffield. Journey times are between 29 and 44 minutes.

Chinley can be used as the gateway to the mighty Peak District, a national park characterised by limestone valleys, stark moorland plateaus, stone villages and winding footpaths that traverse the Pennines. Just remember to bring your camera because you’re not going to want to miss snapping the spectacular views along the high ridges.
