History[edit]

See also Langley Mill branch station

The station was opened on the Erewash Valley Line by the Midland Railway in 1847 and known as Langley Mill for Heanor. However, in 1876, the GNR built Eastwood and Langley Mill on its branch from the Derbyshire and Staffordshire Extension at Awsworth Junction. The Midland station then became Langley Mill and Eastwood.

In 1895, the Midland built a line through Heanor to Ripley with an adjacent station of its own.
