HistoryEdit

The original station, called simply Tutbury, was opened on 11 September 1848 by the North Staffordshire Railway. Nestlé have a historical presence in the village of Hatton due to the surrounding farmland, which supported a strong dairy farming industry. Nestlé's factory is labelled by the company as their Tutbury factory. Until the late 1970s the factory had its own private siding, which gave access to milk trains from the station. The factory since has developed into a major coffee producer, the sole UK facility producing the Dolce Gusto range, and also Nescafé, which is also made in Hayes.[2] The original Tutbury station closed to passengers on 7 November 1966.

PresentEdit

The present station was opened in 1989 and serves the villages of Tutbury in Staffordshire, and Hatton in Derbyshire. The platforms are not opposite one another due to operational restrictions caused by the presence of a level crossing with the A511 road which is supervised by a signal box. The station is unmanned. All services are provided by East Midlands Railway.

ServicesEdit

A basic hourly service operates from here on Mondays to Saturdays, eastbound to Derby (typical journey time 18 minutes) and westbound to Stoke-on-Trent (38 mins) and Crewe (63-66 mins). On Sundays, there are no trains before 14:00 but an hourly service runs thereafter until late evening.[3]
