The changed entrance is a great impovement from what it replaces but I still have a great nostalgia for the old style frontage but rcognise that is was disfunctional, decrepit and not fit for purpose. Just like many of those in who control our world.

Among them was the youth group Voices In Nike Kyrie Irving 2017 Action, which said it thought the old look station entrance "made Derby look as if it did not take care of itself" and was somewhere "they wouldn't like to be after dark".
After seeing the finished work yesterday, they agreed it now looked "spacious, modern and elegant".
Taking part were three community groups The Movement, Derbyshire Dance Artists Network and Spiral, a performance group of adult with learning difficulties from First Movement.

"The development shows Derby as an attractive place to come to visit and work," he said. "It's the first time I've seen the refurbishment finished but it won't be the last because I use the station regularly.
Fellow group member Analdo Arscott, 17, also of Derby, added: "We are delighted people took notice of what we had to say about the old station and our ideas for the newer look station."
He spoke after unveiling a plaque to mark the opening of the million redevelopment, which has created a fan shaped covered entrance area, new bus terminus, taxi stands and 148 cycle shelters.
THE new look Derby railway station forecourt will "make the city more welcoming to visitors", according to the Secretary of State for Transport, Patrick McLoughlin.
"It always used to seem very dark at night and quite frightening but it has improved now."
Kya Mackay, 16, of Derby, who uses the station at least twice a month, said: "Now you can step out of the station with confidence, find good maps and road signs and it is very welcoming.
Ahead of the opening ceremony, Derby Live staged a 15 minute dance show called Flash Mob, containing music with rail connections.
