Railway Walks & Explorations

A rough, illustrated, guide to the former Gotham gypsum, and other, railways - including the branch of the former Great Central Railway - and what they look like today. This is a 'work in progress'. More GCR route photos, the Barton Mine and Thrumpton Mine route photos to be completed

By clicking the icon in the top left of the map window, you can select/deselect other options to view or click the icon top right to view full screen.

Recommended walking routes are shown in olive green ; these are all on public footpaths.
The GCR and its branch are shown in purple/lilac .
Other railways shown in orange .

I have found a number of websites with more information on the railway and its history.
Follow these links for further information:- All links should open in a new tab.

For a historic map of the route, follow this link and then adjust the transparency on the slider scale to view the present day appearance:

Finally, this website http://sixbellsjunction.co.uk/60s/600910rc.html is a snippet of actually the two railways into Gotham - the first 3 images being the Kingston branch and the latter two being at the Gotham branch's junction with the Great Central at East Leake and the second just outside Nottingham Victoria station on the Great Central again, respectively.
