Heavy traffic around Codnor could mean you need an accident solicitor in Codnor
Anyone working or living around Codnor, Derbyshire might be interested to know that in the early 20th century, Codnor was served by trams. The one which took the village folk to Nottingham was known as the ‘Ripley Rattler’. Travelling on these vehicles was basically risking life and limb as D.H. Lawrence, who was born only 4 miles away at Eastwood, described in his short story, “Tickets Please.”
During World War I, the driver’s had to be men who were unfit for active service. They would be teamed up with a female conductress. It was not unusual for a tram car to end up in a ditch in the dark. The trams were vastly overcrowded by folks looking for dates in Nottingham, going to the cinema or simply wanting a change of scenery. Sometimes the tram cars caught fire; in essence they were death traps. Strict rules and regulations try to keep us safe these days.
Traffic problems on the A610
In the late 1960s, both electric power lines and trolley buses were removed from Codnor. However, in recent years, Codnor has suffered from traffic problems especially in the rush hour. Traffic can come to a complete standstill because the A610 which is the main road to and from Nottingham goes through Codnor.
