Hadfield railway station serves the village of Hadfield in
Derbyshire, England. The station is one of the twin termini at the Derbyshire end of the Manchester-Glossop Line, the other being Glossop. It was opened by the Sheffield, Ashton-Under-Lyne and Manchester Railwayin 1844.
The line formerly continued east of Hadfield to
Penistone, Wath and Sheffieldvia the Woodhead Tunnel. Passenger trains on the Woodhead Linewere withdrawn east of Hadfield on 5th January 1970, followed by complete closure in 1981. The tracks were lifted several years later, but the trackbed is still visible and has been partly adapted as a footpath.
Hadfield was (and still is) the eastern terminus for local trains to/from Manchester Piccadilly. From 1954 until 1984 the station was served by Class 506 Electric Multiple Units (EMUs), latterly the only British Rail EMUs capable of operating on the Woodhead Line's non-standard 1500 V dc electric system. In December 1984 the line was converted to the standard 25,000 V ac system and the Class 506s were withdrawn. Trains at Hadfield are now normally formed of Class 323 EMUs.
There is generally a half-hourly service Monday to Saturday daytimes via Glossop to
Manchester Piccadilly.Some peak journeys operate to or from Manchester directly via Dinting missing out the reverse at Glossop, allowing a 20 minute frequency from the same number of trains.
The Sunday service is half hourly, though evening services are roughly hourly seven days a week.
