Trains-People-Pride

With its shops, restaurants, bars, sports facilities and access to the spectacular Peak District, Dronfield is a favourite place to live especially for commuters to Sheffield and other large cities.  It is also a place of interest for visitors who come in increasing numbers to view the medieval St John’s Parish Church and Dronfield Hall Barn dating back to 1430.  In recent years access to and from Dronfield has been made much easier by the work of the Friends of Dronfield Station (FoDS) a voluntary community group dedicated to taking care of our local station and improving train services for the people of Dronfield.
