New Mills Newtown railway station serves the town of New Mills in Derbyshire, England. The station is 23 km (14¼ miles) south east of Manchester Piccadilly on the Manchester to Buxton line. It also serves as an interchange with the Hope Valley Line station New Mills Central, 15 minutes' walk away across the valley.

It was built on the Stockport, Disley and Whaley Bridge Railway line, in 1863 built by the London and North Western Railway to connect with the Cromford and High Peak Railway and extended to Buxton.

General information

There is a generally an hourly service each day to Manchester Piccadilly northbound and to Buxton southbound, with additional services at peak periods. Three trains each weekday continue through to Blackpool North. Trains run every two hours each way on Sundays.

In the past, New Mills Newtown had quite a substantial goods yard, including an elevated signal box of LNWR type 5/6 design, a large three-storey warehouse including basement, and a crane and wharf. These were all built by the LNWR. Recently, the last remaining evidence of this goods yard was demolished. These were the stables for what were meant to be the railway's horses, but ended up being used for many other horses in New Mills. There is also a three-span wrought-iron footbridge that connects Redmoor to its other half, the end of which has steps leading down to the children's park on Chapel Street. This is built on five brick columns: there are five columns for a three-span bridge because one end is held by the steps, the other supported by the Chalkers Snooker Club embankment. The others are in close alignment holding an otherwise flimsy thin iron bridge.
