Creswell railway station serves the village Creswell in Derbyshire, England. The station is on the Robin Hood Line between Nottingham and Worksop. It is also the nearest station to the larger village of Clowne.


The line and the station was built by the Midland Railway. The station was designed by the Midland Railway company architect John Holloway Sanders.[1] For many years it was known as Elmton and Creswell to prevent confusion with the nearby Creswell and Welbeck station opened by the LD&ECR in 1897[2] and closed at the outbreak of WW2.[3]

Branch line

A branch line veered west immediately north of the station. Its remains are still plainly visible from the north end of the platforms and from Worksop trains. This was the Clowne Branch, which wound a very circuitous route through Clowne, Staveley, Barrow Hill and Whittington to Chesterfield. It closed to normal passenger traffic in 1954, though Summer holiday trains to Blackpool North continued until 1962.

It remained open to freight traffic until the 1980s when the combination of an underground fire and the need to replace tracks led to its closure. The trackbed was formally protected in case a use was found, such as for opencast traffic or for access to the Markham Enterprise Growth Zone at M1 Junction 29A although this never came into fruition and the tracks were removed and the area landscaped to create the Clowne Branch Line Greenway, a shared bike and walking trail starting in Creswell and culminating at Poolsbrook Country Park.


Monday to Saturdays, there is generally an hourly service northbound towards Worksop and southbound to Mansfield and Nottingham. A Sunday service of four trains in each direction was introduced in December 2008, but since May 2011 the service was cut back to run between Nottingham-Mansfield Woodhouse only.[4]
