Alfreton station was opened by the Midland Railway in 1862, although the current buildings date back to the 1970s when the station re-opened following a short period of closure. Trains to Alfreton travel on the Erewash Valley line between Nottingham to the south and Sheffield to the north. Other services include trains to Leeds, Chesterfield, Norwich, Liverpool Lime Street and London St Pancras. It's about a mile's walk west to get to Alfreton town centre and the High Street. Here you will find the main collection of shops in the town, as well as a number of pubs, cafes and restaurants. Regular buses leave from outside the station for the ten-minute journey into town; otherwise it is a straightforward walk along Mansfield Road. One of the landmarks of the town, the 17th century Alfreton House, stands just off the High Street and now is home to the town council.
