Alfreton railway station serves the town of
Alfretonin Derbyshire, England. The station is on the Erewash Valley Line29 km (18¼ miles) north of Nottingham.
Opened by the
Midland Railway, it became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railwayduring the Grouping of 1923. The line then passed on to the London Midland Region of British Railwayson nationalisationin 1948. The British Railways Boardthen closed it from 1967 to 1973.
When Alfreton's station re-opened in 1973, it was given the name "Alfreton and Mansfield Parkway", as the nearby town of
Mansfieldin Nottinghamshiredid not have a railway station of its own (in fact, it was the largest town in Britain without one). Following the re-opening of the Robin Hood Linein 1995, Mansfield had its own station again, and Alfreton station regained its original name.
