Vehicular access to Bulcote Farm is controlled by this barrier. This is the Stoke Bardolph Estate end of "Old Main Road". In the late 1870s several surveys of this estate identified it as a suitable area - with good drainage - where the authorities could dispose of sewerage through spreading it on farm land, letting it seep through into the soil and where treated effluent could be injected into the River Trent. As a result the Corporation of Nottingham leased 638 acres of land at Stoke Bardolph from Earl Manvers in 1878, purchasing the estate later. Sewage spreading was begun on June 1880. The area covered by the farm increased in subsequent years and it soon extended into the neighbouring parish of Bulcote. The farm was a once a fully-functioning agricultural business, selling the milk that was produced from cows grazing on the land although its function seems to have changed now to embrace biogas and biofuel production.
