barclaycon 569 Posted January 20, 2011 Report Share Posted January 20, 2011 I've often wondered about the cut-through at Moor Lane (Bramcote). I used to deliver newspapers to the farms at the end of it (White House and Moor Farm). What are the origins of this road carved through the sandstone? It must have been something important because it's quite a substantial amount of stone cutting. Why was it built and when ? What was it used for? For those who don't know where I'm talking about. If you go down Moor Lane, at the end it suddenly becomes a cut-through with quite high sandstone walls which, after a while, reaches Bramcote Moor. (Im sure many people will remember staggering back through there after a night out at Moor Farm Inn (now gone). If you continue on, the road reaches the railway bridge next to the dried-up canal - then goes on to Balloon Woods. Try as I might, I haven't discovered much about it. So any info would be gratefully received. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
