Awsworth railway station

Awsworth railway station was a former railway station in Awsworth, Nottinghamshire. It was opened by the Great Northern Railway (Great Britain) on its Derbyshire and Staffordshire Extension in 1875-6

It was situated on a down grade between Kimberley East railway station and the crossing of the Erewash Valley, which it crossed by means of the impressive Bennerley Viaduct which has been partly preserved. Nearby was Awsworth Junction where a branch led north towards Eastwood and Langley Mill and Pinxton [Higginson, M., (1989) "The Friargate Line:Derby and the Great Northern Railway," Derby: Golden Pingle Publishing]

It closed in 1964.
