SK5351 : Linby Docks

taken 8 years ago, near to Linby, Nottinghamshire, Great Britain

Linby Docks
Linby Docks
On either side of Main Street are the streams (docks) which used to feed the mills of Linby. They are tributaries of the River Leen, from which Linby takes its name. There are still three mill wheels in the village, two of which are still in working order (see SK5351 : Water Wheel), but these days the streams are more for cress, ducks and tourists. In World War II, a Lord Haw-Haw broadcast stated that Linby Docks would be bombed. Obviously the word 'docks' on a map automatically converted to a strategic target. The bombs did come, but landed in a nearby fields.
