Spondon railway station is used by the little community of Spondon and the surrounding Derbyshire villages. It was opened in 1839 by Midland Counties Railway making it one of the first stations in the country. Today, the station and the trains that pass through are managed by East Midlands Trains. The station was extended in the 20th century to serve the thousands of workers who started commuting to the nearby British Celanese plant. In the second half of the 20th century, the station fell out of importance and the ticket office was closed. There are no facilities for buying tickets here, so they must either be bought online in advance or on board the train with the conductor. There’s an irregular service several times at day direct to Birmingham New Street in 56 minutes and Nottingham in 25 minutes. There are no services on a Sunday.

When you step off the train in Spondon, you’ll be just moments from several green spaces including Willowcroft Road Park and the Derby Golf Centre where you can practise your swing along the rolling fairways.
