Details

Bolsover South is a former railway station in Carr Vale, Bolsover, Derbyshire, England.HistoryThe station was opened by the LD&ECR in March 1897 as plain "Bolsover". It was closed to all traffic by British Railways in December 1951, primarily due to the prohibitive cost of repairing and maintaining Bolsover Tunnel. Track lifting started immediately after closure and was completed within weeks, though the station building survived as an increasingly vandalised eyesore for some years. The photograph opposite shows the characteristic Station Master's house in 1963, the station itself was behind the bush on the extreme right of the photo. Also behind the photo to the left was a railway-served jam factory.The station was built in Carr Vale and was one of only two places on the LD&ECR where a level crossing was necessary, the other being Skellingthorpe. To the west was Doe Lea Viaduct and to the east was a 300ft limestone ridge through which it was necessary to drive the notorious Bolsover Tunnel. To the east of this was the next station at Scarcliffe.The station architecture was in the company's characteristic modular style with lots of glazing as were, for example, Arkwright Town, Edwinstowe and Ollerton.
