You could be forgiven for thinking that Matlock Bath station - a tiny, one-platform stop with neither a ticket office nor ticket machines - serves an obscure rural village. In fact, this charming Derbyshire spot is hugely popular with tourists, with a dramatic gorge setting, a string of traditional pubs and cafes, and a major visitor attraction in the shape of the Heights of Abraham. Situated on the southeast fringes of the Peak District, it's also a popular starting point for local walks. The station itself is right in the heart of the village, on the banks of the River Derwent. It opened in 1849, and its original building - now used as an education centre by Derbyshire Wildlife Trust - has a distinctive Swiss-chalet style that was intended to fit the backdrop of high cliffs and green hills. The cable car to the Heights of Abraham, a cliff-top country park, is just north of the station.
