Former Idridgehay station, 1998
View over the level-crossing on the ex-Midland branch from Duffield (to left) to Wirksworth (to right). The station was closed to passengers 16/6/47 when the regular branch service ceased, to goods 5/1/53. Although regular freight traffic to Wirksworth continued until 1/4/68, the line has survived and used for various purposes, having been operated since 2003 as the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway by WyvernRail plc (formed 1992). This explains the presence of the crossing-lights in 1998. (See also SK3144 : Hazelwood station remains, 1995).
