There can be few Victorian stations still in operation that are as well-preserved as Glossop. Lovingly maintained by the Friends of Glossop Station society, the 1845 station's brick buildings, platform canopies and hanging baskets are a warm welcome for travellers arriving by train. Pulling into the town centre, visitors are delivered just a short walk from Norfolk Square, the High Street, and Glossop Market. Glossop, the terminus for trains travelling from Manchester Piccadilly, is in the foothills of the Pennines, and is known as the gateway to the Peak District National Park. Buses link the station with various destinations within the park, including the Pennine Way walking trail, which passes a few miles to the east of the town, and the village of Hayfield for walks on the Kinder Scout moorland plateau. The legendary mass trespass of Kinder Scout in 1932 was the beginning of the campaign for greater access to the English countryside.
