Big-sky country
Big-sky country
The Sproxton to Saltby road, looking towards the pantiled roofs of Saltby. The reclaimed land over the hedge to the right, now Derek Shaw Racing Ltd, was from 1921-61 the huge Sproxton No 1 ironstone quarry. The High Dyke Branch railway terminated at the Saltby road about 200 yards north of here, but there is now nothing to see. The picture shows the wide-open limestone country and big sky of this part of north Leicestershire and South Lincolnshire.
