This statue stand proudly at the entrance to Chesterfield Railway Station. It is a fine tribute to a great engineer with so many links with the area and who is buried in the town. A worthy memorial well worth a visit.

This state is right outside the railway station and is a good start to a tour of Chesterfield. I had arrived by train so this was very fitting.

Was surprised to find this statue immediately outside the railway station at Chesterfield. It is very impressive, I must find out what the connection is!

Walking into Chesterfield Train Station, its hard to miss the George Stephenson Statue, dedicated to the father of the train - the original rocket man! Well worth a visit, even if you're not catching a train!

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??
