'Cinder Oven Bridge'

Post by Richard A Thackeray »

First off, apologies for being away for so long

However, can anyone help me, please?

The site states that the 'name-stones' are in Rothwell Country Park
I've ridden around there a few times, & seen the embedded tracks, but no idea where the stones are

I've asked a few dog-walkers in there, but no-one can help

I'm sure someone on here can?

Thankyou

Is this the end of the story ...or the beginning of a legend?

Thanks for the responses so far and at least Richard now knows what he is looking for but I think his question was more precisely where rather than the whole park. One of the photos in the link he provided shows a railway bridge in the background presumably over the Aire and/or canal. Could that be the still existing Derby Line (Leeds to Woodlesforde and beyond)?

It was in the park, and looks too heavy for anyone to move without being noticed. So I assume it is still there.

it more than likely is the existing line
As you state, it's its exact location that I'm trying to find
I've been round all the main tracks on both sides of the 'road', up to the summit, etc....

I assume you want to 'discover it yourself rather than someone spoiling your fun by telling you exactly where it is?
When I saw it there were 3 boys playing around it, You might need to go on foot, it allows you to see things you might not see from a cycle. It was a long time ago, and I don't recall it being near a path, I was not specifically looking for it, so didn't take notes.
