Hathersage railway station serves the village of
Hathersageclose by, in the Derbyshire Peak District, in England.
It was opened in
1894on 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 villager's 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.
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.
