New Mills Central sign

Although we visited as part of a trip to Manchester, New Mills is actually in Derbyshire, and has two stations. This one, Central, is on the line to Sheffield, while New Mills Newtown is on the line to Buxton.

The station is a short way to the west of the town on the north side of the valley. The entrance to the station and platform 1 from Station Road:

The front (road-side) of the station building, just to the left of the entrance:

The side of the station building has a bricked up doorway:

The entrance leads on to platform 1, seen here under the canopy looking west:

At the eastern end of platform 1, next to the entrance, we look east under the footbridge:

Next to the footbridge is a sign telling us that New Mills Central is for the Torrs Millennium Walkway, which connects the two ends of the Torrs gorge:
