The traditional-style canopy has been funded by Northern, TPE, South Yorkshire PTE and local user groups, and its launch coincides with the 125th anniversary of the Hope Valley line. 

Dore and Totley was opened by the Midland Railway in 1872 and expanded with the opening of the Dore to Chinley line in 1894.
