Pictures show the eight lost and long-forgotten railway stations of Chesterfield

The Chesterfield area has a proud railway history and once boasted three stations close to the town centre and many more across the borough.

Maps of the town at the start of the 20th Century show the extent of railway development – with tracks radiating in all directions, accompanied by freight marshalling yards, locomotive depots and a series of historic stations serving different communities.

Only Chesterfield Railway Station survives – others closed in the Beeching cuts of the 1960s, or even earlier as competing lines were closed when companies were amalgamated.

We are grateful to Philip Cousins, of Chesterfield and District Civic Society, for producing this list of lost stations in the borough.

Philip has also thanked members of the Derbyshire Victoria County History Chesterfield research group for contributing to the article.
