Bike Touring Highlight
A former Great Northern Railway line from the late 1800s, the Teversal Trail is now a network of superb gravel tracks that run for miles and link up much of North Notts with the old colliery railway stations. Expect abandoned platforms on the edge of the trail and impressive railway bridges that keep you away from the traffic below. The railways here were mainly used for transporting coal and goods and while coal pits have existed here since the 1600s it wasn't until the railways arrived in the mid-late 1800s that the industry really got serious. Passenger transport died off a few decades into the 1900s.
