Manchester, Buxton, Matlock & Midland Junction Line (former) :: Shared Description

The Manchester, Buxton, Matlock and Midland Junction Railway ran from a junction with the Midland Railway at Ambergate to Rowsley north of Matlock and on to Buxton.
It would become part of the Midland Railway's main line between London and Manchester, but it was initially planned as a route from Manchester to the East of England, via the proposed Ambergate, Nottingham, Boston and Eastern Junction Railway which would meet it a little further north along the North Midland line at Ambergate. The line opened to Rowsley in 1849 and finally reached Buxton in 1863. The line closed in 1968. part of the line is used today as The Monsal Trail.
