Go many times to Chesterfield railway station to pick up my daughter who travels from Manchester to visit us. The station is a very welcoming place and I only started noticing the statue with picking my daughter up.

No, not Elton John! Our own inventor of Stephenson’s Rocket. I always take a peek when collecting our visiting family members from the Railway Station. He was decorated appropriately at Xmas. I’m surprised there is no England scarf on him with the World Cup ongoing!

Tall and well modelled, tribute to a man who has had an influence in every part of the world. Who doesn't remember his rocket??

Standing a front of the Chesterfield train station stands this cheery statue of a local entrepreneur inventor and steam enthusiast! Worth a visit as you pass thru.

A very impressive statue just outside the railway station, very well made and well looked after, better than a lot of similar statues

Its a very good statue of George Stevenson that is situated at the entrance to chesterfield train station. It's a great welcome to Chesterfield's historical town. Shame this statue usually has a homeless person next to it, begging.

I had to catch a train to London last week and there was something very satisfying about seeing George waiting at the entrance to the station to greet me

Right outside the railway station, which is fitting. Very detailed and nicely designed with the wheel aspect and in good condition.

Its a life size statue of the famous self educated father of the railways. Technically very life like and good street architecture.

The statue of George Stephenson outside the railway station at Chesterfield is very topical, bearing in mind his connection with the area. Its a really good way to welcome visitors and locals alike to the station.
