The site of Stathern Sidings
A view over the ironstone parapet of the humpbacked bridge carrying the Harby to Waltham road over the former GN&LNWRJt line from Nottingham to Melton Mowbray and Market Harborough. The hedge straight ahead marks where the railway once was. The line of trees and bushes crossing in the middle distance is the site of Stathern Sidings, where iron ore from quarries at Eastwell and Branston, brought by narrow-gauge railway, was transferred to the main line. A double-acting cable-worked incline up the escarpment, which operated from 1881-1960, carried the narrow-gauge wagons up and down Harby Hill. To see its course, click LinkExternal link .
