Reminder of the ironstone railway at Sproxton
Reminder of the ironstone railway at Sproxton
The paddocks and gallops of Derek Shaw's yard at Sproxton occupy land which was from 1921-61 Sproxton No 1 ironstone quarry. The yard's postal address is "The Sidings", Saltby Road - to most people, I imagine, a mystifying name as there is now no evidence of the quarry or the railway which served it. This picture of the nameboard is taken from the drive to the house, looking towards Bescaby.
