Kimberley: the former Great Northern Railway station
Kimberley: the former Great Northern Railway station
Now houses, this building is the same style as the others on the Great Northern Railway Derbyshire Extension line built in the 1870s, principally to carry coal. Passenger services were from the Pinxton branch and Derby Friargate to Nottingham (originally London Road and later Victoria). The Pinxton line closed in January 1963, and as a sixth-former I was on the last train from Friargate to the Vic on 7 September 1964.
