Nottingham Station (Nottingham)

Nottingham Station is the railway station serving the Midlands city of Nottingham.

It is the sole survivor of a number of other stations in the city. Arkwright Street was closed in 1969, Nottingham London Road High Level in 1967, Nottingham London Road Low Level in 1944 and Nottingham Victoria in 1967.

The existing station was built, replacing an earlier one, by A. E. Lambert in 1904.

Trains for Nottingham leave London from St. Pancras Station, and travel by way of Luton, Bedford, Kettering, Market Harborough, Leicester and Loughborough.

There is a connecting line to Derby.

An important cross country line runs to Newark, Lincoln, Grimsby and Cleethorpes.

Another runs to Grantham, Sleaford, Boston and Skegness.

There was a bewildering system of railways to the North of the city, mostly serving the Nottinghamshire coalmining area, including Hucknall and Mansfield.

The Great Central Railway ran to London via Loughborough, Leicester and Rugby.

There was also a line running to Melton Mowbray, part of which was used until recently for testing high speed trains.
