Rediscover Forgotten Railways

At risk of too much turkey and Christmas pudding?

Why not rediscover the Woolsthorpe Branch!

If you fancy a breath of fresh air over the Christmas and New Year holiday, while rediscovering some railway heritage, let our new group of pages, Railways Rediscovered, be your guide.

The first page of the group covers the northern half of the former Woolsthorpe Branch, a line built by the Great Northern Railway as long ago as the 1880s for ironstone traffic.  There's a good series of photographs which were taken recently while walking the northern section of the former branch from near Muston (Belvoir Junction) to Longmoor Lane, a distance of around 3 miles.

So why not get out and about, burn off a few excess calories and clear away the haze of over-indulgence?

Look out for the southern section of the Woolsthorpe Branch in the New Year.
