The rescue, repair and conservation of Wingfield Station is the DHBT's live flagship project.
In 2016 we identified 12 of the most 'at risk' buildings in the county, which included Wingfield Station. Amber Valley Council invited the DHBT to partner their efforts to secure a Compulsory Purchase Order for the station. This was confirmed in late 2019 and the site transferred to us on the 10th December 2019. Urgent capital works commenced in October 2021.
The intention is that the project will act as a catalyst for further projects to combat Heritage at Risk in Derbyshire.
