Full Description

Remains of the old Great Northern Railway branch line, linking the GNR Nottingham - Pinxton line with the Midland Railway Erewash Valley line. The last time the track was used was in 1950. The bridge across the canal at this point was not demolished until 1967. The line gave the GNR access to the Butterley Iron Works and was, in fact, built before the main line to Pinxton. The branch was double track at this point. The bridge was of cast iron and wood construction. (1).
