Pinxton and Selston railway station was a station that served the villages of Pinxton, Derbyshire and Selston, Nottinghamshire. It was located on the Midland Railway's (Now the Robin Hood Line). It was one of three stations that served the village of Pinxton. The others were both Pinxton South and Pye Hill and Somercotes.


Opened by the Midland Railway in 1851, it became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The station closed to regular passenger traffic in 1947 but continued in use for summer excursions until 1963,[3]

The site today[]

The Robin Hood Line was revived in the 1990s following the closure of the Mansfield Railway through the town and the freight-only route was then reused. However, the section from Kirkby to Langley Mill was not reopened to passengers and is in use for freight only. Nothing remains of Pinxton and Selston station.

As part of the Restoring Your Railway fund there are plans to reopen the station and the line to passengers. The line through the station would reopen first with a later stage to reopen the station. [4]
