February has proved the old saying – “You wait ages and then two come along”. Narborough Road heading in to town has been closed to traffic this week between the old Braunstone Hotel site (the original end of the Narborough Road tram route) and Upperton Road for resurfacing work. This meant the road plane was in use and exposed a real treat for passers by.
Local resident, Chris Davies, was present to witness the uncovering of the cobbled road surface and some of the inbound track. A keen follower of our website – Chris took these pictures to share with us. What a great spot!
Many thanks to Chris Davies for taking the time to send us his discovery – remember if you spot anything on your travels that serves as a reminder of our tramway system please do let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org .
