Hawkesbury: Former Wyken Colliery Mineral Railway
Hawkesbury: Former Wyken Colliery Mineral Railway
The footpath here, immediately to the north-west of the Coventry Canal, follows the route of the former Wyken Colliery Mineral Railway. This was built to serve Wyken Main Colliery by the London & North Western Railway, branching off from their main Coventry to Nuneaton line. The colliery ceased operations in 1910, but newer industrial works in the vicinity created a continuing need for a railway connection and this section of the branch at least is shown with trackwork on the 1950s Ordnance Survey map. Black Horse Road in the distance had a level crossing with the railway.
