Friden goods station generated a lot of traffic for the Cromford and High Peak, not least from the DSF Refractories (formerly Derbyshire Silica Firebrick) works that still operates alongside the old trackbed trail. This was the point where Buxton locomotives would hand soutbound trains over to the Middleton Top based tank engines and in turn take their trains, and traffic from Friden, northwards. View north towards Parsley Hay past the firebrick plant, which had a siding inside this building. (With thanks to Malcolm Chattwood for additional information on the location).
