Daybrook railway station was a railway station in Daybrook, Nottinghamshire. It was opened by the Great Northern Railway (Great Britain) on its Derbyshire and Staffordshire Extension in 1875–6 and closed in 1960.

History[edit]

It was on the descent from Arno Vale towards Leen Valley Junction where the line from Annesley joined.[3] The line between Gedling and Carlton and Daybrook closed in 1960 because of mining subsidence in Mapperley Tunnel.[4]
