    Visit to Wingfield Station

    All day

    Built in 1840, the grade II* listed Wingfield Station is the last surviving example of railway architect, Francis Thompson’s work on the North Midland Railway.  After decades of neglect, it has now passed into ownership of the Derbyshire Historic Buildings Trust who are planning an ambitious restoration.

    DAS members are being given a unique opportunity to visit the site in its unrestored state, but numbers will be limited. Booking details will be provided in September with the Winter Programme mailing.
