Vicinity of A614/Longdale Lane Roundabout, Notts.
Vicinity of A614/Longdale Lane Roundabout, Notts.
An eastward view across a now defunct railway bridge over the A614 (Old Rufford Road). This was the course of a former branch line that once served the former Calverton Colliery. The colliery closed in 1999. This track can be joined 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. Sansom Wood is a 15 minute walk away behind the photographer, where the track can be joined.
