the 80s/90s I lived in Loughborough. Being a child
1970s, I became enamoured of the Great Central Railway,
the trains or the revived stations, but the derelict areas, the overgrown cuttings and embankments, the sad decrepitude of it all.
Between approximately 1988 and 1991 I took several walks up the line with my camera. On one Summer's day in 1990 I
did a marathon stint from Stanford Viaduct as far as Rushcliffe Halt. Later I discovered remnants of the
line further north, in Nottinghamshire.
