Staveley Central was a railway station in Staveley near
The station was on the
Great Central Main Linewhich ran between London and Manchester. It was opened on 1st June 1892 as Staveley Town, renamed Staveley Central on 25th September 1950 by British Railwaysto prevent confusion with the nearby ex- Midland Railwaystation of the same name and closed on 4th March 1963.
The station was the northern junction for the loop line to Chesterfield and so had four platforms. The timber-built booking hall was on a road overbridge and there was a waiting room on each platform. The station was also the junction for branches to the Ireland, Hartington and Markham Collieries and at the south end was Staveley Engine Shed (shed code 18D in BR days).
The location of the station is now being turned into a new road to link to the M1 junction 29A.
