Advance notice and good news! For staff and visitors to Rothley station

At long last we shall be tackling the car park at Rothley station in a similar fashion to that already achieved at Quorn & Woodhouse.  The work will commence on Monday 8th April and last for 5 days and it is hoped that we shall banish the flooding and pot-holes. However, please be warned that midweek disruption to parking may occur in that period, and we would ask for your forbearance on this. It is possible that vehicle access may be totally blocked for some periods and you would then be advised to park on the approach ramp (although a reverse all the way back out might be necessary), or on Westfield Road outside. I am hoping that pedestrian access can be organised via the station steps from the bridge during that time. Normal service will be resumed for the weekend.
