The view from West Leake Hills
The view from West Leake Hills
The industrial premises are a transport depot but were previously a gypsum works. The flat area beyond are the fen-like Gotham and Ruddington Moors - very fertile arable land. The prominent hedge sweeping right from the left hand edge of the depot marks the line of the former Great Central Railway branch to Gotham. Although Gotham boasted a station, this handled goods traffic only and the line was never open to passengers. The principal freight was gypsum, although general goods including agricultural produce were handled as well.
