Mansfield station was built in 1872 and was instantly one of the town's most-loved structures - although its popularity was soon eclisped by the majestic 15-arch railway viaduct also built by the Midland Railway Company. The station was axed after The Beeching report in 1963 and Mansfield became the largest town in England without a railway service until its reopening in 1995. For a town with such historic rail roots, it was a sad period, as the town's horse-drawn railway line of 1819 - built to transport coal from the nearby collieries to the Cromford Canal at Pinxton - was one of the first of its kind. Today, Mansfield is Nottinghamshire's largest market town with the market square a retail oasis, featuring a modern shopping centre. Other attractions include Mansfield Museum and Mansfield Palace Theatre. Water Meadows Swimming Centre is also worth a visit with a wave machine and 50m waterslide. For those wanting to get away from the streets, Thieves Wood and Fountaindale are both just a few miles to the south of the town centre and can be reached by bus.
