SK4944 : Kimberley: once the goods yard

taken 10 months ago, near to Kimberley, Nottinghamshire, Great Britain

Kimberley: once the goods yard
Kimberley: once the goods yard
This street is The Sidings, built on where the goods yard of Kimberley East station once was. A large wooden goods shed survived for a number of years after the Nottingham Victoria to Derby Friargate line closed (to passengers on 7 September 1964 and to goods on 2 November of that year). The line was built by the Great Northern Railway in the 1870s, chiefly to serve the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire collieries. The view is from the footbridge (now renewed) which crossed the railway.
