Hazel Grove Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Hazel Grove railway station is on the Stockport to Buxton / Sheffield line, serving the village of Hazel Grove, Greater Manchester, England. It was built for the Stockport, Disley and Whaley Bridge Railway by the London and North Western Railway and opened on 9 June 1857. From 1923 until 1948 it was owned by the London Midland and Scottish Railway and following nationalisation it was operated by the London Midland Region of British Railways. At one time there was another station in the village (Hazel Grove (Midland)), on the Midland Railway's line from New Mills South Junction to Manchester Central via Cheadle Heath, which opened in 1902, but it was less conveniently situated and closed in 1917. The line was extremely expensive to build with extensive earthworks. The navvies were accommodated in specially-built houses near the Rising Sun pub, which still exist, and are known as the "Navvy Mansions". The line from Edgeley Junction (just south of Stockport) to Hazel Grove was electrified in 1981 on the 25 kV AC overhead system. The station has two side platforms, linked by a footbridge and lifts and has a signal box on the Buxton-bound platform. This controls the junction between the Buxton line and the chord linking it to the route through Disley Tunnel towards Sheffield at the country end of the station and also a pair of carriage sidings at the Stockport end used for stabling trains that terminate here. Ticket barriers are in operation.
