Midland & Station Hotels,

The Midland Hotel is on North Parade, next to the bridge leading over the Derwent River to Matlock Bath Station on the East bank. The Station Hotel is opposite, at the angle between Brunswood Road and North Parade. It is now called "The County & Station Hotel".

These two engravings were made from photographs taken about 1888 by Frederick Barber, and part of an Album published in 1891 by Joseph J Hope, (see Views by Barber for more details).

These hotels can be followed in the Census:
Midland: 1901, 1891, 1881, and 1871
Station: 1891, 1881, and 1871
