Mansfield Woodhouse sign

Mansfield Woodhouse station serves a village/suburb to the north of Mansfield. I visited on a grey day with the intent of mopping up a bit more of the Robin Hood Line (which was reopened in the mid-1990s after an attack of the Beechings).

The station approach is from a largish car park:
