Swannington Station

The Midland Railway bought the Leicester and Swannington Railway in 1846.  The new owners immediately set about extending the railway to Ashby de la Zouch and Burton on Trent.  Swannington station was built as part of the 1848 extension.

The passenger service ceased in 1951.  The site now houses permanent “mobile homes”.
