The Queen and Prince Philip visit Heaton Moor, to board the Royal train at Heaton Chapel station on the 14th November 2013 [see 'News' for more pics].
There are no disabled access facilities at this very busy station. The ramps are dangerous, extremely long, steep and straight, without landings; there are no lifts.
There are 42 steps down to each of the platforms.
A few FofHCS members visited Glossop on the 20th December 2012 on a cold wet day. The FOGS have done a fantastic job here, it is a real credit to them all and it's no wonder that they have won so many awards.
