150 Years of Dronfield Station

posted in: News Posts 0

Friends of Dronfield Station volunteers and members of the general public gathered together at the start of February to celebrate 150 years of the town’s station.

The special event was marked with the unveiling of commemorative plaques and posters detailing the station’s history, with Dronfield Mayor, Cllr Lilian Deighton, and North East Derbyshire MP Lee Rowley and representatives from Northern Rail and the community police in attendance.

We paid tribute to the many members and volunteers from FoDS who have played an instrumental part in campaigning for and maintaining the station to a high standard over the duration of numerous years.  We were also treated to a fantastic performance from the Dronfield Genquip Band - which you can view a short clip of below:

Thank you to everyone who braved the weather and came along and helped us mark the occasion. You can view a selection of photos from the today – kindly reproduced with permission from Jane Singleton of the Dronfield Civic Society – below. Plus you can also read our specially produced posters, if you haven’t yet had chance to see them at the station.

Here’s to the next 150 years of Dronfield Station!
