History

It is on the Nottingham to Lincoln Line which was engineered by George Stephenson and opened by the Midland Railway on 3 August 1846. The contractors for the line were Craven and Son of Newark and Nottingham The buildings were designed by Thomas Chambers Hine.

The buildings originally comprised a station building and station master's house combined (pictured), and, on the opposite side of the road, a crossing keeper's hut. The level crossing adjacent to the station is still in operation, but the main building passed into private ownership in 1990. It has since been extensively renovated by the owners, and many original features restored.

In 2017, Network Rail announced that the platforms would be extended to handle longer trains.

Services

East Midlands Trains serve this station with trains between Newark Castle and Matlock via Nottingham. Trains call hourly each way throughout the day (with extras at peak times). These mostly run between Newark Castle and Matlock via Derby, but some Lincoln to Nottingham and Leicester trains also call at peak times and in the evenings. On Sundays, trains only call from mid-afternoon onwards and run between Lincoln and Nottingham.

East Midlands Trains also run a single train from London St Pancras International to Lincoln via Nottingham and the Midland Main Line Monday to Saturday.
