Bamford station was built by the Dore and Chinley Railway, a company which was absorbed by the Midland Railway prior to opening. The line was opened for goods traffic on 6 November 1893, and for passenger trains on 1 June 1894, but Bamford station was not opened until 25 June that year.[1][2]

The Dore and Chinley line later became known as the Hope Valley Line. The station became an unstaffed halt in 1969 when the last station master purchased the Station House. The main station building was located on the road overbridge, and was removed during the late 1970s.

Derwent Branchline

During the construction of the nearby Derwent and Howden dams between 1912 and 1916, the railway carried stone from a quarry at nearby Grindleford, up a branch line to the worksite. When the dams were completed, the branch line was removed, but later re-instated during the WW2 construction of the Ladybower Reservoir. A signalbox used to control the station and branch line, but this has since been relocated to Peak Rail. The branch line has since been removed, but there is access to the old trackbed as the Thornhill Trail.


The station is unmanned as noted, but Northern has installed ticket vending machines here to allow intending travellers to buy tickets before boarding. Standard waiting shelters are provided on each platform, whilst train running details are offered via help points, automatic announcements and timetable posters. Step-free access is available to both platforms (the eastbound one via a ramp from Station Road).[8]


All services are provided by Northern Trains except the first (to Liverpool Lime Street) and the last (to Nottingham) which are provided by East Midlands Railway.

Trains from Sheffield take around 22 minutes, and trains from Manchester Piccadilly take around 53 minutes.
