Step free access note
The station forecourt/car park slopes steeply upwards from its entrance at the junction of Market street and Reservoir Road. Access to the Buxton platform is step-free via a tarmac footpath along the front of the station building to a gate onto the platform, or via 10 steps up to the ticket office then one step down onto the platform. Step-free access to the Manchester platform is via a sloping path from Station View and through a gate onto the platform. A stepped footbridge connects the two platforms. However there is a very large gap between the train and platform on both platforms. This makes disabled access very difficult
