Railway Bridge near Stragglethorpe
Railway Bridge near Stragglethorpe
This railway line opened in the 1960s to carry coal from Cotgrave Colliery, one of the last pits to be sunk, in 1964. The coal was carried north west to the main Nottingham to Grantham line and the Colwick marshalling yard: see SK6339 : Two Railway Bridges, SK6339 : The last siding and SK6339 : Rectory Junction. When Cotgrave closed in 1994 there were millions of tonnes in reserves but the coal was not of the highest quality, and it was deemed uneconimic to extract.
