South Wingfield Station Building, Holm Lane, South Wingfield - Amber Valley

Built in 1839-40 to the designs of Francis Thompson, a pioneering engineer of the railway era, for the North Midland Railway. The station is one of the earliest railway stations in England, and therefore the world. It is the sole survivor of Thompson's picturesque stations between Derby and Leeds. The building has been in private ownership for many years and is in a very bad condition. Historic England grant-aided a condition survey, and subsequently supported Amber Valley Borough Council in serving a Repairs Notice.
