Yes there was. If you put "Caroline" in the Search box at the top of the page you'll find quite a few references to it in various Nottstalgia threads. It's the building on the right of this photo. It was still there a couple of years ago, but I don't know if it's still there now.

Used to catch a train at Netherfield for work in Loughborough. It seemed so easy then. Lived up the road on Park Rd.

A fellow work mate & train spotter was a signalman at Netherfield Lane (mid 60s)

We used to go to the Wrangler shop at Calverton Ian. Probably the same place. Chris had loads of shirts over the years. He had a wardrobe sort out one day and sent at least thirty to the Charity shop. He instantly regretted it. At one time it was the only place we bought our jeans from.

They also made Skipper and GRP sailing dinghies. They moved to Langar where they made a few much larger motor cruisers. I had A 35’ Bourne cruiser called Sybaris which I bought from Roger Pearce who owned Brownhills. It was a very sold craft with twin Ford Sabre diesels and a Sherpa van engine which powered the generator. There were teak laid decks all round. It must have cost a fortune when new. I believe it now resides in a marina at the Isle of White.
