Black and white and grey and all the colours of the rainbow
More prosaically, this is the site of Old Egginton Station, on the Stoke to Derby railway. Opened by the North Staffordshire Railway in 1849, there was a station here to serve the village of Egginton. In 1878 the Great Northern Railway opened its line from Derby and a new station was built at the junction with the NSR a short distance to the west. The passenger station here was closed although a goods only facility was retained until at least the 1920s.
