Nottingham Canal and Colliery 1963
Nottingham Canal and Colliery 1963
Accessed by way of Woodyard Lane, the Nottingham Canal climbed by a succession of locks to reach it's summit level close by Wollaton Colliery. At this time, in 1963, many of the lock gates had been vandalised and many were missing. Today, it is hard to comprehend that this scene existed, since now the area has been covered by modern housing.
