Glossop railway station serves the Peak District town of Glossop in Derbyshire,England. Glossop is the third busiest railway station in the county of Derbyshire after Derby and Chesterfield. It is located just north of Norfolk Square in the centre of Glossop.
The station is 15 miles (24 km) east of Manchester Piccadilly,and is the terminus of the Glossop line. Together with nearby Derbyshire stations at Hadfield and Dinting,Glossop is considered to be part of the Greater Manchester rail network as it lies only a short distance over the county boundary and the line goes no further into Derbyshire. For that reason the station signs at Glossop feature the Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) logo,and the station features on the TfGM rail network map.  However,Greater Manchester concessionary fares do not apply to passengers travelling from Glossop,Dinting or Hadfield. 
Henry Howard,13th Duke of Norfolk built the spur line from Dinting Viaduct to Howard Town over his own land at his own expense. He then sold it to the Sheffield,Ashton-under-Lyne and Manchester Railway  for £15,244 10s 10d (equivalent to £1,600,000in 2021).  The station was opened on 9 June 1845 to goods traffic;the formal opening was on 30 June 1845 –it was attended by some of the SA&MR Directors,and passenger traffic began immediately afterward.  The station buildings were constructed to the designs of John Grey Weightman and opened in 1847. 
There was a previous station called Glossop on the main line but that was renamed Dinting with the opening of the Glossop station on the branch.  The new station was originally named Glossop,and was renamed Glossop Central on 10 July 1922,reverting to Glossop on 6 May 1974.  
Originally built with two platforms,the station was reduced to one operational platform in the 1970s when the branch was singled. When the voltage changed from 1500 V DC to 25 kV AC on 7 December 1984,the AC trains continued to use the old platform before the single line was transferred from one side of the island to the other. Trains arriving from Manchester Piccadilly reverse to proceed to Hadfield,and vice versa. The other platform face and redundant station buildings were incorporated into an extension for the next door Co-op supermarket and car park,now owned by The Co-operative Group.
The station is now a Grade II Listed building and a blue plaque was unveiled in 2006.  [ failed verification ] 
Glossop and Hadfield
There is generally a half-hourly daytime service to Manchester Piccadilly and Hadfield. This is increased to every 20 minutes in the morning and evening rush-hour periods.  In order to increase the frequency with the same number of units in service, the peak hour timetable is altered so that there is no direct service to Hadfield in the a.m peak (passengers must change at Dinting) and afternoon Manchester services run via Hadfield instead of direct.
Trains operate hourly in the evenings and half-hourly on Sundays. When there is engineering work on Sundays, the replacement bus service only operates hourly.
A number of services to/from Manchester Piccadilly start or terminate at Glossop during the rush hour, early morning and late evening.
All passenger services are operated by Northern Trains, who use Class 323 and Class 331 EMUs.
