SK5541 : The Leen Valley at Bobbers Mill

taken 6 years ago, near to Lenton, Nottingham, Great Britain

The Leen Valley at Bobbers Mill
The Leen Valley at Bobbers Mill
The canalised and partly-culverted Leen runs behind DTN Pallets' yard, which occupies the site of the mill which gave the area its name. The Midland Railway line to Mansfield and Worksop was the first of three built to serve the Leen Valley's pits and the only one which remains. The chimney in the centre is all that remains of Gerard's Soap Works (demolished in April 2011); the former Shipstone's Brewery (SK5541 : Shipstone's Star Brewery) is on the skyline to the right of centre. The view is from the footbridge: SK5441 : Bobbers Mill Bridge from the footbridge is the view in the other direction.
