Shirebrook North railway station

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

It was built at Langwith Junction on its line between Chesterfield and Lincoln. A branch ran north to meet the Midland Railway at Beighton originally with the aim of running on the MS&LR's line into Sheffield Victoria. That company rejected the idea and, for a time, it led to a goods depot at Beighton, until it was linked with the Sheffield District Railway in 1900. [Cupit,T., Taylor, W., (1984 2nd.Ed.) "The Lancashire, Derbyshire and East Coast Railway," Trowbridge: The Oakwood Press]

The station had four platforms and was one of the few with a refreshment room. The signalmen would warn passengers of the arrival of a train by ringing a bell.

In 1898 the line was joined by the GNR's Leen Valley line through its own station at Shirebrook South from Pleasley. The LD&ECR had plans for its own branch to Mansfield but gave them up, and built a curve into the Midland Railway line to Worksop (now the Robin Hood Line) The Shirebrook railway station station used today was known as Shirebrook West,
