Churnet Valley Railway Feb 19, 2017
In the south-west corner of the Peak District, close to the village of Cheddleton, the Churnet Valley Railway operates steam and diesel train services from Cheddleton station to Kingsley & Froghall station, a distance of some 10 miles through the delightful Churnet Valley of Staffordshire. The services operate most weekends from the beginning of March to the end of September but please check the timetable on the website below -- and please note the steam service only operates on certain dates -- otherwise it's diesel.

Very close to Cheddleton station are the Churnet River and Caldon Canal which offer very nice walking -- heading north for about a mile brings you to a historic flint mill -- although flint milling there dates back to the 18th century, there is evidence of a mill on that site going back to the 13th century.

It's a very nice area indeed -- you can take a train ride and at the same time enjoy walking through some beautiful countryside.

Address: Kingsley & Froghall Station, Froghall ST10 2HA

Directions: From Leek, take the A520 to Cheddleton -- shortly before the village turn left down Station Road and drive for about a mile to get to the train station.
