Longdale Lane Vicinity, NG15
On the south side of Longdale Lane, in the vicinity of a Forestry Commission-type public path (track) into Sansom Wood, the course of a former branch line that once served the former Calverton Colliery . This is a view looking back towards Sansom Wood, with some greenhouses belonging to Old Hall Nurseries evident on the right. The colliery closed in 1999. This track can be joined in Sansom Wood and followed for a mile or so, although for the most part it is heavy on footwear and the ankles due to the nature of the rocky surface. It is also overgrown in parts.
