River Leen at Bobbers Mill
River Leen at Bobbers Mill
Poulter Close and Greet Court, south-west of Bobbers Mill Bridge, are on the site of Radford Colliery, which closed in the 1960s. The Leen runs behind Lynmouth Crescent (to the left, behind the trees), then south through Old Radford and Lenton before joining the Trent. The concrete-post-and-iron-rail fence, which shows in old photographs, is the only surviving evidence of the colliery here. I remember it well, and seeing the colliers coming on and off shift, as we fished for tiddlers from the left bank.
