East Beeston
Sunday 18 June, 2017 2.30pm, (Assemble in the car park of the Free Church on Salthouse Lane).

This walk starts more or less at the boundary of Nottingham and Beeston on Broadgate.It moves along Broadgate and down Humber Road into an area largely developed in the late 19th Century as a suburb of the core village of Beeston.  This was once a thriving industrial area with bicycle works (Humber) and boilers (Beeston Boiler Company) and houses for the work force, as well as churches to serve the community, were built.  Today the industrial core of the area has gone, and we no longer think of this as anything other than part of Beeston.   The walk will then continue back to the High Road junction with Humber Road, where it will end.
