Hathersage railway station serves the village of Hathersage in the Derbyshire Peak District, in England. It was opened in 1894 on the Midland Railway's Dore and Chinley line (now the Hope Valley Line). The original buildings were of timber and have disappeared with the platforms being rebuilt in masonry. The villagers' initial reaction to proposals to build the railway may have been unenthusiastic. They had already had an unfavourable experience of the 'iron horse' in the form of a traction engine in 1882, which, drawing two heavy carts, had made the roads almost impassable, killing a boy and overturning a mail cart. In addition a private carriage collided with it, killing one of the occupants.

Facilities The station is unstaffed and has no ticket provision, so these must be purchased on the train from the conductor. Standard waiting shelters are provided on both platforms and train running information is offered via CIS displays, automated announcements, a pay phone and timetable posters. Step-free access is available to both platforms, which are linked via a ramped subway. Service The typical off-peak service from the station is one train every two hours to Sheffield and one to Manchester Piccadilly. This is increased on Saturdays to one train per hour in each direction and on Sundays it is again two-hourly (with some extras in summer). East Midlands Trains call here with the first service of the day to Manchester and Liverpool Lime Street also on the final return working. All other services are provided by Northern. A normal weekday service operates on most Bank holidays. References
