The '''GNR Derbyshire and Staffordshire Extension,''' locally known as ''the (Derby) Friargate Line'' is a now closed railway line that was part of the Derbyshire and Staffordshire extension of the Great Northern Railway (Great Northern Railway (Great Britain)). It linked Nottingham and Grantham to the east of the East Midlands counties to Burton upon Trent to the south west of the area. The route cut a direct line through the midlands industrial city of Derby whereupon an impressive warehouse was constructed, large sidings and the pretty Derby Friargate Station. The line had such an impact on Derby, Friargate and the surrounding areas that it became known as the Derby Friargate Line. "Underneath the Arches" The Flanagan and Allen song "Underneath the Arches (Underneath the Arches (song))" may have been influenced by the arches around the bridge. According to a TV programme broadcast in 1957, Bud Flanagan said that he wrote the song in Derby in 1927, and first performed it a week later at the Pier Pavilion, Southport. ''Together Again'', TV Programme broadcast 19 April 1957 Born in Chellaston, Derby, Aldred was a right-handed batsman and a right-arm medium-pace bowler. His county debut came in 1995, and his top batting score of 83, achieved against Hampshire (Hampshire County Cricket Club), came during 1997. His best bowling figures are 7 101, achieved against Lancashire (Lancashire County Cricket Club) in Derby in Derbyshire's 1999. He continued in First-class cricket until 2002, when he retired. Paul Aldred at Cricket Archive Dumelow was born in Derby. He began playing for the Derbyshire Cricket Board in 1999 and made his first-class debut for Derbyshire in the 2001 season. Upon his baptism in first-class cricket, he made an immediate impact, taking on his debut the wickets of Yousuf Youhana and Inzamam-ul-Haq.

However a new station, East Midlands Parkway has now been built at Ratcliffe-on-Soar. Initially it will provide a bus connection to the nearby East Midlands Airport, but with improvements to the Erewash Valley Line has the potential to be a hub for local services from Nottingham and Derby to connect with a high speed service from London to Sheffield and the North. The Nottinghamshire miners already had a tramway, the Mansfield and Pinxton Railway. They attempted to raise the funds for a railway to Leicester but found it difficult to attract investors. Their ideas developed into a line linking Nottingham to Derby and Leicester which would carry their coal from the Erewash Valley. This was the beginning of the Midland Counties Railway, and they attracted the attention of Lancashire and Yorkshire financiers. The idea developed further into a connection to the London and Birmingham Railway at Rugby (Rugby, Warwickshire). However, a proposed connection from the north of the Erewash to Chesterfield was its undoing, since it would compete with the North Midland Railway. Career Born in Derby, Derbyshire, Barnsley (Barnsley F.C.) boss Paul Hart continued his rebuilding by signing full back Hassell from Mansfield Town (Mansfield Town F.C.) in the summer of 2004. He failed to negotiate a new contract with Mansfield Town (Mansfield Town F.C.) at the end of the 2003–04 season and completed his move to Oakwell on 1 July. Hassell was excellent for Barnsley throughout the 2004–05 campaign and was a certain starter when fit. He made 43 appearances throughout the campaign and put in some notable displays both at right back and in the middle of defence. He missed parts of the 2005–06 campaign through injury he was in fine form whether at right back of in the middle of defence to help Barnsley gain promotion. He then enjoyed another fine campaign during 2006–07, again in the running for all the end of season awards, Hassell clocked up 42 appearances, netting two goals.

'''Derby''' ( ) is a city (City status in the United Kingdom) and unitary authority area (unitary authorities of England) in the East Midlands region of England. It lies upon the banks of the River Derwent (River Derwent, Derbyshire) and is located in the south of the county (ceremonial counties of England) of Derbyshire, of which it is traditionally the county town. In the 2011 census, the city had a population of 248,700 and 1,543,000 in the wider metro area.

As home to Lombe's Mill, the first factory in the world, Derby is considered a birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. With the arrival of the railways in the 19th century, and due to its strategic central location, the city grew to become a foremost centre of the British rail industry.

Today, Derby is an internationally renowned centre for advanced transport manufacturing, home to the world’s second largest aero-engine manufacturer, Rolls-Royce (Rolls-Royce Group PLC), and Derby Litchurch Lane Works—the UK's only remaining train manufacturer. The Toyota Manufacturing UK's automobile headquarters is found just South of the city at Burnaston.
