Glossop Station travels to the moon and back with poetry

5 Apr, 2019
The Poetry Platform takes to the space age at Glossop Station.

Derbyshire’s Friends of Glossop Station have created new content for their Poetry Platform display at the station. It commemorates fifty years since man first stepped onto the moon. It features several poems including ones by Christina Rossetti and Shelley. For children we have included the well known rhyme, ‘Hey Diddle Diddle!’

Penny Greenwood and Paul Marsh have selected the poems and Paul has created an eye catching design which includes appropriately an Apollo moon rocket. The display is already catching the eyes of travellers passing through the station.
