Ashby station
Ashby station
Looking across Tamworth Road to the railway station behind the fence. This station was built for the Midland Railway in 1849 on the Burton-to-Leicester line. Its refined single-storey classical form, with pillared portico, shallow bay windows, and square end pavilions were designed by R. Chaplin, who designed the spa buildings in the town. Now closed and recent efforts to reopen the goods-only line to passengers have failed.
