Return from Cauldon Low
Return from Cauldon Low
This train had been hauled up to the terminus (an abandoned railway freight terminal for loading stone from the adjacent quarry) by a steam loco and was about to be taken back down the valley by diesel 33021. 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].
