Bolsover, New Bolsover and Carr Vale


Pause mouse over images to view larger images

During my many years researching both my Richards family history and that of the village of Palterton, I have acquired a few images relating to other nearby villages.

It is not my intention to research any of these villages. However, I am posting a selection herein of images in my posession relating to the town of Bolsover and nearby villages of New Bolsover and Carr Vale.  I am aware there is a good web site relating to the village of Carr Vale.  I have included an image of Arkwright Town railway station herein.

Also Central Workshops, I think!
