Edale railway station serves the rural village of Edale in the Derbyshire Peak District, in England. It was opened in 1894 on the Midland Railway's Dore and Chinley line (now the Hope Valley Line), becoming an unstaffed halt in 1969.
Lying below Kinder Scout, the station is the closest station for the start of the Pennine Way.
The station has two platforms with no level crossing or footbridge. To change platforms, there is an underpass located next to the road in the village. The station is managed and served primarily by Northern Rail using rolling stock such as the Class 142 Pacer and Class 150 Sprinter, with the occasional Class 156 Super Sprinter. East Midlands Trains services are usually run with Class 158 Express Sprinter units.
The station is about 5 minutes walk from the centre of the village, where the Pennine Way begins, with the Nags Head public house being 'the official start of the Pennine Way'.
