Worksop sign

When the Robin Hood Line from Nottingham was reopened it connected back up here at Worksop, so this is where I ended up in my Robin Hood peregrination. The station has two platforms connected by a footbridge and a level crossing at the eastern end of the station. There's a station building on the south side of the line and a smaller one on the other.

The front of the station building, from the eastern end:
