Trains to Marple

Although Marple station has been open for 150 years, the current station dates to renovations that took place in the 1970s, and very little remains from the Victorian era. The influence of the old station lives on, however, through a brilliant piece of literary trivia: the story goes that a delay at the station inspired Agatha Christie to name her female sleuth Miss Marple. A collection of book covers from the detective series are on display at the station. Trains from Marple include services to Sheffield, Manchester Piccadilly and New Mills Central. The station is north of the town centre, and it is a thirteen-minute walk through Memorial Park to the pedestrianised shopping precinct along Market Street. There are also regular buses from the station to Stockport Road in the town centre. The Friends of Rose Hill association has produced a leaflet of walks in the area that is available from Marple station, or can be downloaded through their website.

Station details & facilities

From the station car park you can enter via the ticket office, or directly onto platform 2 (to Sheffield and New Mills Central) via a ramp. The toilets and bike racks are also on this platform. Trains to Manchester Piccadilly depart from platform 1, which is reached via a footbridge and has an waiting room. There’s currently no step-free access to platform 1. For buses into town, use the stop across the road from the car park.
