Dinting is a district of Glossop in Derbyshire, England. The district falls within the Simmondley ward of the High Peak Council. It is a small village and has no shops; apart from a chip shop. The nearest are in neighbouring Glossop or Hadfield. However, there is a small primary school, Dinting C of E, located near the viaduct. The 1st Dinting Scout Group has been very active since 1938. The village is served by Dinting railway station. It is notable for the structure Dinting Arches, part of the Glossop Line which goes as far as Manchester Piccadilly railway station, and the Dinting Railway Centre, which was run by the Bahamas Locomotive Society until it closed in 1991 due to lease difficulties. The museum moved to the Ingrow station alongside the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway Line [1].
