Colliery Lines to Cycle Paths
The above is the heading to a small paragraph in the latest edition of an on-line rail enthusiasts magazine. The article goes on to say that Notts County Council is to buy the now redundant rail lines (and thus the track bed) which used to serve the collieries of Bilsthorpe, Cotgrave, Calverton and Clipstone. This will allegedly cost £80,000 - seems a snip to me - and the conversion to cycleways will add another £1.7 million. Good News, what?
