Who are we?

We are the officially recognized group representing Chinley Station within the High Peak & Hope Valley Community Rail Partnership. We are members of the Association of Community Rail Partnerships (ACORP) and also a member of Railfuture, the UK’s leading independent organisation campaigning for better rail services. We are also a consultative member of the Derbyshire CC bus service strategy review group.
The group was originally established to improve travel services and facilities for members of the community as a result of the Chinley, Buxworth and Brownside Parish Plan. The group is entirely made up of volunteers and has no political affiliation whatsoever.
