Sheffield Wicker Station MR Horizontal Menu Untitled
Sheffield Wicker was Sheffield's oldest rail station, built as the terminus of the Sheffield & Rotherham Railway and opened on 31 October 1838. It ceased to be used as a passenger station after 1 February 1870 when the Midland Railway, which had subsequently absorbed the Sheffield & Rotherham Railway, opened a direct route via Chesterfield. The old Wicker station continued to be used as a goods station until 1965. The facade of the Spital Hill Tunnel, which linked Wicker Station to the GCR main line, is supposedly to be incorporated into a Tesco Supermarket that is being built on the site.
