Derby Daily Telegraph Tuesday, 2 September 1890OPENING of a New Railway.
The Midland Railway Company have again extended their system bythe opening of the Doe Lea extension for passenger traffic
on Monday morning. About two miles of railway from the junction with the Seymour line was constructed over 20 years ago. No further
lengthening of the line took place until 1884, from which time the work has been in the hands Messrs. Tomlinson, contractors, of Derby. The new
line is about eight miles long, and connects the Clowne with the Teversal branch, thus forming another route from Chesterfield to
Mansfield. There are three stations, neatly built of brick, viz. Bolsover (at the foot of the Castle), Palterton and Sutton, and
Rowthorne and Hardwick. There is a tunnel of nearly a mile beyond Glapwell, to which place the line runs along a beautiful valley, and
gives increased facilities for visiting Bolsover Castle and ruins, and also Halls, Glapwell and Sutton Hall, the home of the Arkwrights';
but the main receipts will probably be derived from the adjacent collieries, See., amongst which are the Staveley Company's extensive pits, No. 1 aud No. 2,
which work the coal on the Sutton estate, and Glapwell Colliery, belonging to the Sheepbridge Co. (Limited). A large colliery
plant is also being put down by the Bolsover Colliery Co., near the station, besides which there are the Firestone Works of the Bathurst Co., near
Palterton. About 400 houses are be put up for workmen Poolsbrook (for Markham) and Bolsover. The branch consists of single line of
rails, will be worked on the tablet system. A service of trains (three each way) is running between Mansfield and Chesterfield, the
change being made at Staveley Station.

GLAPWELL COLLIERY WORKMEN'S EXCURSION.
Nearly 500 of the workmen, their wives and friends paid a visit to Llandudno on Saturday, last in thorough holiday weather, and if the first train from
the Glapwell new station may be taken as an augury of its future success the M R Co. will be repaid for their latest development of the Doe Lea
Branch. A special train had been chartered and long before the time of departure, 2 a.m. some 300 people had assembled on the Glapwell
Platform. These were augmented by contingents from Palterton, Bolsover, and other intermediate places toChesterfield. In the composition of the
train every possible comfort was provided, and though the journies to and fro are very long, the monotony was relieved with singing and music of various
descriptions. On arrival at Llandudno (8 a.m.) breakfast was the first order of the day, after which many took advantage of a sea trip to Bangor,
Beaumaris and Menai Bridge. To those who preferred "dry land" great Orme's head was an attraction but no matter where one went Glapwell work people
were in evidence. The return journey commenced at 6.50 p.m., and the party arrived at Glapwell at Mid-night. It is admitted on all sides that
this year's trip was more enjoyable than all it's predecessors, and Mr Smith, the colliery cashier who made the arrangements was warmly thanked for the
excellent manner in which they had been consummated.
