Trackbed of the Denton Branch
Trackbed of the Denton Branch
Looking north-east along the curved cutting as it approaches the Belvoir Road bridge (just visible in the background). The railway was opened in 1883 to serve the ironstone quarries around Denton. It closed in 1974 and is now part of National Cycle Route 15, which appears to be little-used.
