Grindleford Station 2/5

The station at Grindleford is now unstaffed and had no ticket provision until 2018, but operator Northern has now installed ticket vending machines here and made the intermediate stations between New Mills and Sheffield part of a penalty fare scheme. Here a westbound train sets off for the beautiful journey through the Hope Valley.

It reminds me of how green your country is, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It doesn't come much greener than the Peak District Ray.
They still have the old signalling ?
Brian Walbey: Yes they do, I know it was still working because it saw the signal both up and down.
It certainly winds through some lovely landscape!
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely journey until it gets closer to Manchester and popular for walkers who park at either Hope or Edale, then walk between the two and catch the train back to get their cars. Maureen done that some years ago with our local ramblers.

It looks to be very rural Brian

Rather a nice train journey I would think Brian

Must be one of the prettiest bits of railway left in the country.
Brian Walbey: It usually features in books dealing with that sort of subject Tom, obviously once it approaches Manchester it starts to get more urban. The line starts at Sheffield of course so if you and your wife fancied a short but pleasing train ride and a modest stroll then you wouldn't have far to go. Details of the line are here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hope_Valley_line

Have you done that rail journey? Perhaps its possible to a linear walk.. out by train and walk back. Wgehen we were in the Yorkshire Dales last September, we wanted to use Other to get us from our base towards the Three Peaks but they were on strike every Saturday. I gave up looking after the fourteen consecutive Saturday. We'll try it again this September.
