Nottingham - Carrington NG5
A view of a segment of Watcombe Circus. Beyond the railings are a number of blocks of retirement apartments but prior to their existence this was the site of Carrington Lido, a public leisure facility opened in 1937 and closed in 1988. However, originally the site was used for stables for the horses which had drawn local trams once these animals were no longer needed. This changed occurred in 1901 when the electric trams appeared on the route between the city to Sherwood.
