Disley railway station serves the village of Disley in Cheshire, England. It is 12 13 miles (19.8 km) south east of Manchester Piccadilly on the Manchester to Buxton line, built by the Stockport, Disley and Whaley Bridge Railway. The station, and all trains serving it, are operated by Northern.

Facilities[edit]

The station has a manned ticket office, though this is only open during morning peak periods (07:10–10:10). At other times, tickets must be bought on the train or prior to travel. Train running information is available via telephone, automated announcements and CIS displays, though waiting facilities are limited to shelters on each side (other buildings, including the former station house and signal box having been demolished). Step-free access to both platforms is available via ramps and sloping paths from Buxton Road West.[1]

Service[edit]

There is a generally an hourly service each day to Manchester Piccadilly northbound and to Buxton southbound, with additional services at peak periods. A limited number of trains were previously extended beyond Manchester Piccadilly in the early morning and evening peak periods - these ran to a number of destinations, including Clitheroe, Kirkby, Wigan North Western, Blackpool North and Barrow-in-Furness. The Sunday service here is also hourly each way.[2]
