Rothley Station (Rothley)

Rothley Station is the railway station serving the attractive Leicestershire village of Rothley on the edge of Charnwood Forest.

It stands on the edge of the village, not far from the Knights Templar Chapel.

Rothley was on the Great Central Railway, the last main line to be constructed in England in the 1890s and shamefully the first to be done way with in the 1960s under the Marples Axe.

A stretch of line, however, has now been reopened as a steam heritage railway between Loughborough Central Station and Leicester North Station.

The line originally ran from Nottingham through Loughborough, and then on to Leicester, Rugby and Marylebone Station in London.

D. H. Lawrence proposed to a young lady from Quorn in a railway carriage between Quorn and Woodhouse Station and Rothley.
