A bit of info about the location…
Miller’s Dale was once an important railway junction, where passengers for Buxton joined or left the trains between London and Manchester on the old Midland Railway. Since the railway was closed in 1970 the station has become an important car park and access point to local walks.
The hamlet is still dominated by the impressive, massive railway viaducts across the Wye valley here.
