Duckmanton East Junction is a former railway junction near Arkwright Town in Derbyshire, England.

Context[edit]

Duckmanton East Junction was one of four interrelated junctions built by the GCR to connect its main line to the LD&ECR's main line when it took the latter company over in 1907. The junctions are usually referred to collectively as "Duckmanton Junction" or occasionally as "Duckmanton Junctions."

Description[edit]

The four junctions operated interactively, so they are described together in the article Duckmanton Junction to which the reader is referred.
