Creswell station serves the village of Creswell in Derbyshire and sits on the Robin Hood Line. The line runs on a bridge over the village's main east-west road. Looking at the bridge on its west side:

Turn left and we're going up Gypsy Lane:

And from there up the entrance ramp to platform 1:

The shelter on platform 1 is a boring metal and glass affair:

Opposite platform 1 we can see the old station building, but it doesn't look to be in a good state:

We have to go back down to the road and under the bridge to get to the other platform. Looking at the bridge from the other side:

At the junction with Station Road, which leads to platform 2, is this wheel:

Past industrial units on the left (which obscure any closer view of the station building) we arrive in the car park:

A little way to the north is the signalbox which controls the crossover and once also controlled the junction with the Clowne branch:
