Southwell Trail

The Southwell Trail is a Local Nature Reserve in the Newark and Sherwood District of Nottinghamshire. It was previously a railway line dating back to the mid 19th century when Midland Railway proposed a route from Rolleston, via Southwell, to Mansfield. Opened in 1871, it primarily served the mining industry in the area with passenger services ending in the 1920's. The line was eventually closed as part of the British Rail modernisation in the 1960's.

Popular with walkers and cyclists the Southwell Trail has become an integral part of my doorstep photography series which includes only photographs taken within walking distance of home. The aim is to document aspects of the trail and its associated footpaths across the four season of the year.
