Newquay Avenue
Newquay Avenue
This view is taken from the corner of Alfreton Road and Bobbers Mill Road, looking down Newquay Avenue. On the left are the side of the former Capitol Cinema and a Second World War air-raid shelter. The building on the corner opposite the Capitol (just visible here, and much modified) was once Towlson's sweet shop. Lynmouth Crescent runs at right angles at the end of Newquay Avenue. It is almost impossible to imagine that until the 1960s Radford Colliery stood behind the trees - once exclusively poplars - on the other side of the River Leen, which ran along the ends of the gardens of the houses on Lynmouth Crescent and was a good place to fish for tiddlers and see dragonflies. Part of the colliery site is now Poulter Close.
