Glossop station has been highly commended by judges in The Railway Heritage Trust Conservation Award category at this year’s National Rail Heritage Awards.

The station, which is managed and maintained by Northern Rail, was applauded for the restoration and conservation of its buildings, platforms and facilities.

Recent work funded by Northern Rail, Network Rail and Derbyshire County Council included:

  • relocation of the ticket office
  • new passenger waiting facilities
  • new DDA compliant toilet and ticket counter
  • additional CCTV and seating


Passengers are also able to benefit from a new station canopy which has been installed by Network Rail.

Volunteers from the Friends of Glossop station group added their own personal touch to the station with tasteful baskets of flowers and pictures throughout.

Lee Wasnidge, Area Director for Northern Rail, comments: "This award is a fantastic recognition of our partnership approach to delivering improvements for our passengers. We are very proud of what has been achieved at Glossop station so far and this award is testament to the tremendous support and hard work put in by our partners and everyone at Northern.”

The National Rail Heritage Awards ceremony was held at Merchant Taylors Hall in London on Wednesday 5 December.
