View from Colwick Woods park
View from Colwick Woods park
Open space which was part of the Colwick Hall estate, purchased by the City of Nottingham in the early 20th century. It includes a 50 hectare local nature reserve incorporating ancient woodland, managed grassland and a triassic geological site. The latter is due to the way the hillside has been cut into in the past by the River Trent, leaving an abrupt drop to the valley floor.
Visible in this view are the Greyhound Stadium, Nottingham Racecourse, Trent Bridge Cricket Ground (two of the new floodlight pylons can be made out directly above the grey-roofed grandstand of the racecourse), to the right of them the brownish tower block is Trent Bridge House, housing some County Council departments, and further to the right the long pale roofs are County Hall. In the far distance is Ratcliffe Power Station.
