View from Bobbers Mill Bridge
View from Bobbers Mill Bridge
Trains from Worksop and Mansfield are on the last leg of their journey to Nottingham as they pass Bobbers Mill Bridge and the Speedo factory on the right. This line was built, in 1848, to carry coal, but is now used by commuter trains. The overgrown area to the left of the tracks was once part of Radford Colliery. Player's Bonded Warehouse on Wollaton Road is in the distance to the left of the tree in the centre. On this bright early-autumn morning the plume of steam from Ratcliffe-on-Soar Power Station, eight miles south-south-west of here, showed clearly. For another distant view of it taken a couple of hours later, see SK5838 : Trent Bridge Cricket Ground on the last day of the season. Alan Murray-Rust took SK5441 : The Leen Valley Railway at Bobbers Mill looking south here in much greyer November 2007.
