Peak Districtof Derbyshire. It was built in 1863 by the Midland Railwayon its extension of the Manchester, Buxton, Matlock and Midlands Junction Railwayfrom Rowsley.
Originally known as "Longstone", in 1913, it was renamed Great Longstone for Ashford (Ashford in the Water). Once the Midland reached
Manchesterthe line carried expresses to London St Pancras and heavy mineral traffic.
