First Impression of Nottingham gliding in by train from Newark Castle, Newark Northgate or Grantham after the obvious rural gap of east Notinghamshire took the form of Eastern City derelict factory facade. The former tunnel to Victoria plugged with concrete and no high speed Central Railway to London only an hour away.
Ironically Nottingham Town Hall will knock the only icon of it’s true self down, leaving an inner ring road like a race track and tramlines to nowhere.
East Midlands Parkway near Radcliff on Sour power station opened offering M1 commuters to Park and Ride. An Eco-Town is planned on Gotham Pastures near Clifton, a former outlier coal mine.
