Cromford Station in Derbyshire, 15 June 1911. A Midland Railway 4-4-0 locomotive No 1021, heads through Cromford station on the Midlands 'Peak' line between Manchester and Derby. The line was notable for serving the estates of several members of the aristocracy. At Cromford it was the Arkwright family of Willersley Castle. The station buildings have an Alpine flavour appropriate in a part of the country known as 'Little Switzerland'.
