Carrington Station on the Great Central Mainline, about 1899, near the junction of Gregory Boulevard and Mansfield Road in Nottingham, one stop north of Nottingham Victoria Station. The cutting with the platforms was filled in the 1980's and built on. The Great Central was designed and built in the 1890s, by the Victorian visionary Sir Edward Watkin, as a link to a proposed Channel Tunnel, a hundred years before its time.
