Dove Holes railway station serves the village of Dove Holes, Derbyshire, England. The station is on the Manchester Piccadilly to Buxton line 37 km (22¾ miles south east of Piccadlly. It is managed and served by Northern Rail who took over the station from First North Western.
Originally the Midland Railway had hoped that the LNWR would join it in extending the line that they jointly leased between Ambergate and Rowsley. The LNWR declined, then built this one from Buxton to meet its line to Manchester.
In 1957, the gradient into Chapel-en-le-Frith was the scene of a serious accident, in which the driver of a runaway freight train, John Axon remained at his post and died, being awarded a posthumous George Cross.
From Dove Holes there is a train every two-hours Monday-Saturday towards Manchester Piccadilly northbound and Buxton southbound. On Sundays the service frequency in both directions from the station is hourly.
