Nottinghamshire LiveThe freezing cold night of Nottingham's worst railway tragedyNottinghamshire Live... remains so to this day. There have been other railway-related tragedies, of course. In November 2008, for example, a 65-year-old woman and her grandson were killed at the Baylis and Wiles pedestrian level crossing in Old Mill Close, Bestwood Village.
A Brief History of Bestwood Village
Bestwood is an area in the Gedling district of Nottinghamshire. It is part of the civil parish of Bestwood St. Albans. A small part of the village falls within the Ashfield district council area. There have been several new housing estates built recently including the redevelopment of the former Bayles and Whylie factory site which was a former glue mill. It is to the east of Hucknall and north of Bulwell. It is neighboured to the North by the village of Papplewick. It is also close to the Bestwood Park Estate which is in the City of Nottingham.
