Leek Brook Junction lies at the northern end of the Churnet Valley line and is reached through the 531-yard Leek Brook Tunnel north of Cheddleton Station. Leekbrook is also the point at which the line joins the Cauldon branch controlled by Moorland & City Railways. From summer 2012, Churnet Valley Railway services will join the newly-restored MCR line towards Stoke-on-Trent, the first services in this direction going as far as Endon.
The original Leek Brook Junction Signal Box has survived and is now a Grade II listed building. As part of the Churnet Valley Living Landscape Partnership, the NSRC have been able to get the building refurbished and the former hospital platform.
Please Note: There is no public access to Leek Brook Junction and passengers are only allowed to alight from trains on selected running days when the restored Signal Box is open.
