About this image
Looking north-east with the recently dismantled ex-Great Northern Railway Derbyshire Extension line running from bottom left to middle right in the foreground (closed 1968). Passing beneath this isa the ex-Midland Railway Stanton & Shipley mineral branch, to the right of which the curving alignment of the former Nutbrook Canal (closed 1895) can be picked out. Above this is the sinuous course of the ex-GNR Ilkeston-Heanor branch (closed 1963) with the site of Manners Colliery (closed 1949) off to the right.
