The Wolds Farms :: SK6332
This shared description is simply intended to minimise the possible confusion arising from the fact that three adjacent farms in this area have identical names.
Wolds Farm is a common name in the area, with most parishes with a section of wolds including one farm of the name. The more easterly of the three in question, in SK6532, does at least lie in a separate parish (Cotgrave). The other two, confusingly in the same grid square, SK6332, both lie in the same parish, currently Normanton although historically both lay in Plumtree parish. The more southerly one, at SK639320, is closer to Normanton than Plumtree, but there was also a Wolds Farm in Normanton parish, on the area of wolds which took the name of the parish. The more northerly one, at SK630329 is at least more accessible from Plumtree village, although even in this case the route would have involved passing through Normanton parish.
A46 Improvements in Nottinghamshire
Between 2009 and 2012, the A46 between Widmerpool (the junction with the A606 Nottingham - Melton Mowbray road) and Farndon (near Newark) is being upgraded to dual carriageway as the existing single carriageway is overloaded. In many places the new road is on a completely new alignment, allowing much of the older Fosse Way alignment to be retained, in some places effectively as a route for cyclists and walkers, in other catering for the roadside communities. All junctions will be grade separated, although in a number of cases local roads will cross directly, without any access to the improved road.
