Prior to Demolition. Photographed by The Late Kenneth (Nip) Bluff.
Taken just a short while before its demolition early in 1999 the Railway Bridge over the A632 from Bolsover colliery to the site of the colliery spoil tips across the way from New Bolsover.
The first view is looking east towards Bolsover castle and the bottom view is looking west to Mill Farm and Chesterfield. The site is now a new roundabout for the old Bolsover colliery industrial estate.
When the bridge was removed it certainly let a lot of daylight in.
Carr Lane Bridge
Two views of the bridge constructed in the 1890's carrying the ancient Carr Lane over the old Midland Railway Doe Lea Branch prior to removal. The old line is now the Stockley Trail.
