Lovely set of pictures of a very picturesque area.Warsop Carrs, and the church on higher ground above,make a really interesting and pleasant vista at any time of the year. I really like the snowscapes too as as snow always adds a little magic of its own I feel. Concerning the middle portion/island of the lake where the river runs beside, I am still rather alarmed at how denuded of trees and vegatation this area is nowadays, can anyone tell me why the extreme cutback and loss of the willow(?) trees that were once there? And in closing,I often wonder if others,as I have,have compared the winding and somewhat set back nature of the colliery housing at Church Warsop from afar,with the LS Lowry painting "A Hillside in Wales" It does bear a resemblence.

Hi John, The work to clear the island, has only been done the past 6 months. The entire dam, was dredged, new fishing platforms, and upriver, a re-alignment, of the river, to help with the breeding of fish. Over the past few months, swans and wildlife have returned. From what I am told, the plantings, and trees, will develop in the course of time.

Passing through Warsop today on a very wet, cold and wintry November morning, I have noticed that the old houses that were part of JG (Jack) Etches business, work rooms etc-not really sure what purpose they served, these have been demolished in this past two weeks or so I would say. Previously there had been a fire and the damage possibly was not worth making reparations?? Either way, more old buildings gone, and whilst of no significant architectural importance, they undoubtedly had their own story of bygone Warsop to tell.
