Ipstones was a halt on the former North Staffordshire Railway. It closed in 1935 although the old station house is still standing (just out of shot). Occasional passenger services resumed in 2010 on the volunteer Churnet Valley Railway as seen here.
Churnet Valley Railway :: SJ9852
A preserved railway line near Leek in Staffordshire, running from Froghall up the valley to Cheddleton with one intermediate stop at Consall, and (since 2011) on an extension to a former quarry at Cauldon Low, where as of 2012 there is no station. The society has plans to connect to the national network at Stoke-on-Trent.

The lines were originally constructed by the North Staffordshire Railway (the "Knotty"). According to one writer, "the buildings on the Churnet Valley line are of local stone, straightforwardly neo-Tudor, and effective" [Lloyd & Insall, "Railway Station Architecture", David & Charles 1978, p.17].
