Ravenstor Station is the most northerly point of the line, situated just half a mile away from Wirksworth Station at the summit of a 1 in 27 incline. Upon arrival it could be mistaken that you are in the middle of nowhere! In fact, you are just a few minutes away from many of the tourist attractions associated with the High Peak.

Did you know...?
The line north of Wirksworth to the site which is now Ravenstor station was built to serve the many surrounding quarries. The line never carried passengers originally but in September 2005, the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway opened a small station here, creating a brand new passenger railway!
