Cheddleton Station and Level Crossing, Churnet Valley Railway
Cheddleton Station and Level Crossing, Churnet Valley Railway
Reputed to be designed by Pugin and built in 1849, Cheddleton Station was saved from demolition in 1974 (LinkExternal link Churnet Valley Railway) when it was designated as a Grade II Listed Building (LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings).
Churnet Valley Railway
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].
