Did you know...?

Wirksworth Station was built along with the line in 1867. It was home to a beautiful Midland Railway station building with one platform. When passenger traffic ceased in 1947, the station building was mothballed before being demolished in the 1960's to make way for a stone loading dock. A shunter's cabin (a very small mess building) was erected on the station site instead to aid the stone traffic before this too was mothballed when the goods traffic ended in 1989. This cabin now forms part of our Wirksworth Station today.
