Bolsover South railway station

Bolsover South railway station is a former railway station in Bolsover, Derbyshire. It was opened by the Lancashire, Derbyshire and East Coast Railway in March 1897 and closed by British Rail in 1951

The station was built in Carr Vale and it was one of the few places where a level crossing was necessary. [Cupit,T., Taylor, W., (1984 2nd.Ed.) "The Lancashire, Derbyshire and East Coast Railway," Trowbridge: The Oakwood Press] To the east was a hundred foot high limestone ridge through which it became necessary to drive the notorious Bolsover Tunnel. To the east of this was the next station at Scarcliffe

There was an earlier station at Bolsover on the Midland Railway Staveley Town to Pleasley branch.
