Wingfield railway station


Wingfield railway station

Wingfield railway station was a railway station built by the North Midland Railway which no longer exists.

From Ambergate the line passes Wingfield with a station which closed in 1967 although the buildings, by Francis Thompson, remain, at least until 1987. Nearby is the ruins Wingfield Manor, one of the places where Mary, Queen of Scots was imprisoned.

In times past this area was important for coal mining, at Oakerthorpe, South Wingfield, with a branch to Shirland
