Dunholme - isn't that actually in Lincolnshire? oh and it's has a housing estate on it now..;)

Cottam Power Station now stands on this land and Cottam is in Notts.

Well Duholme bridge spans the boundary between Notts and Lincolnshire and yet the bulk of Dunholme is on the Nottinghamshire side. Further investigation is required.

OK let me clear this up. The Lincolnshire carrot crunchers have not stolen a bit of Notts. Dunham is not to be confused with Dunholme!!   :victory:

Seems Lizzie is correct, I apologise for doubting you and you may nick a chip from me anytime you like.

As we can see in the link the photo is from the CEGB so presumably something to do with the power station.

There must have been at least two farms of the same name.

I don’t mind Plantfit getting the glory, so long as I get a chip off Brew at the next meet-up

You just got me thinking when you mentioned Mickleholm Lizzie, so dug a bit deeper, one of my first thoughts was for a motorway or power station looking at the type of earth moving equipment used,some seriously heavy stuff there
