Dronfield railway station serves the town of Dronfield in
Derbyshire, England, south of Sheffield, on the Midland Main Line
between Chesterfield and Sheffield. Construction of the Sheffield
& Chesterfield line was authorised by the Midland Railway Act
of 1864 but it was not until Monday 2 February 1870 that the line
and Dronfield station were opened to traffic. Railwaymen know the
line as the "New Road" as against the "Old Road" built by the North
Midland Railway which took an easier route along the Rother Valley
and bypassed Sheffield. The station is on the long climb up the
Drone valley to Bradway Tunnel at the point where the gradient
steepens from 1 in 201 to 1 in 102. The station had single storey
wooden buildings on both platforms. The main buildings, including
booking office and staff offices, were on the up platform. The
smaller building on the other platform contained a waiting room and
a ladies' waiting room.
