Dismantled and rebuilt

This is Whitwell Station on the Midland railway line from Mansfield Woodhouse to Worksop.

The line closed to passenger services on 12th October 1964, but remained open for goods’ traffic until 14th June 1965, when it closed completely. After its closure, the building was dismantled and taken to the Midland Railway Centre at Butterley, Derby.
