Former stone terminal, Cauldon Low
Former stone terminal, Cauldon Low
An abandoned railway freight terminal for loading stone from the adjacent quarry. It is now used as the eastern terminus of the Churnet Valley Railway - but without a passenger station at present. The site name is variously spelt in different sources as Ca[u]ldon Low[e].
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].
