Shottle! The first station you will come to when starting your journey at Duffield
Onward main line rail travel is via a footbridge across the platforms. There are also excellent bus links from near the station.
Our southern terminus! Duffield Station was reopened on the 8th April 2011 after 11 years of graft by volunteers to refurbish the line from Wirksworth and the station at Duffield. We share the station with main line rail services on the Midland Mainline between Sheffield and London St Pancras International, with local services between Newark Castle, Nottingham, Derby and Matlock calling at Platforms 1 and 2. Our trains to Wirksworth use Platform 3. The station is in Duffield village centre just a few minutes from shops, cafés and pubs.
The Ticket Office and gift shop is open every operating day from 10:00 until the last departure.
The beautiful Booking Office opened in October 2016 and features a range of souvenirs of your visit for you to take home. We also serve hot and cold drinks and have a range of crisps and confectionary too.
The station features Ladies, Gents and Accessible toilet facilities along with baby change adjacent to the Booking Office.
Relax with a picnic on our lawn and watch the main line trains zoom by.
The station has a free car park at the bottom of the platform ramp with space for around 30 cars. Visitors may also use the main line station car park although this is Pay and Display.

Did you know...?
The original station was opened in 1841 a few yards further north to the current station at Duffield by the North Midland Railway. In 1867, the station was moved and turned into a V-shape when the branch line to Wirksworth was built by the Midland Railway. Passenger traffic on Platform 3 to Wirksworth ceased in 1947 and the large station building was demolished in 1969 to leave a typical way-side holt serving trains on the main line only.
