Eastwood and Langley Mill railway station was a former railway station to serve the villages of Eastwood and Langley Mill . It was opened by the Great Northern Railway (Great Britain) on its Derbyshire Extension in 1875-6.[2]

It lay on the branch from Awsworth Junction, where it crossed the Giltbrook Viaduct, on the way to Pinxton. At the time it was in Nottinghamshire, but since recent boundary changes it would now be in on the border of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire]]. It closed in 1963 and was demolished by 1976, and the trackbed was used for the Eastwood Bypass.

Langley Mill and Eastwood was nearby on the Midland Railway Erewash Valley Line.
