Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Carrington railway station was a former railway station in Nottingham on the Great Central Railway main line, the last main line to be built from the north of England to London. The station opened with the line on 15 March 1899, and served the Nottingham suburb of Carrington until 1928. The station was opened by the Great Central Railway on its London Extension and was one of only two original stations on the line to have its platforms on each side, rather than having a single central island. It served a relatively affluent residential area about a mile to the north of the city centre along the Mansfield Road, and thus was popular with business people, and was built in a deep cutting 154 yards in length between the Sherwood Rise and Mansfield Road Tunnels. Had it not been for Carrington station the line would have remained underground here.show more
