DVL Stations take top spots in EMT Awards

Ambergate, Belper and Cromford Stations were winners at East Midlands Trains Best Station Awards. 

Ambergate took first prize for Most Improved Station, Cromford was the winner of the Environment Award and Belper runner up in the Community Partnership category


Ambergate’s success is in recognition of the superb floral displays created by the Station adopters and substantial access improvements carried out by EMT. 

 New steps, footway and access road improvements are wonderfully complemented by the colourful planting barrels and floral baskets, making Ambergate a vastly improved station.

 At Cromford station, volunteer efforts have transformed the environment, bringing in more light and greatly improving the welcome to passengers. 

 A range of native trees, bulbs and wildflowers have been planted to further enhance the environment.  Many local organisations including Arkwright Society, Cromford Parish Council and DerwentWISE have joined forces with station volunteers and the DVLCRP to transform the station. 





Belper’s Community Partnership award is in recognition of Transition Belper’s fantastic community gardening and new Tile Mosaic and Station Art Gallery.


These projects have been coordinated and delivered by Transition Belper, working in partnership with local schools and members of the community, DVLCRP, EMT, Network Rail, and Belper Town Council



East Midlands Trains Best Station Awards celebrate the best of the company’s 89 stations and were made by
a panel of judges comprising East Midlands Trains’ directors and senior managers and representation from Passenger Focus.
