Long Description:
Matlock Bath railway station is on the Network Rail Derwent Valley line 26 km (16¼ ml) from Derby, next stop and end of the branch is Matlock.

Opened by the Manchester, Buxton, Matlock and Midlands Junction Railway in 1849 it is conveniently located in the centre of the village. The station buildings are in unusual 'chalet' style, inspired by the romantic notion that the resort was England's Little Switzerland.

Consequently the chimneys also refect this inspiration.

There are three chimneys on the main building, now operated by the Wildlife Trust as an information and sales centre, and three more on a building about 100m to the north.

The station is now run on the open plan, no platform tickets and tickets only purchased in advance or on the train.
