Babbington Lane is a small lane at the top of Swingate connecting the small Hamlet of Babbington and its most prominent land mark is the water tower situated upon high ground and stables with paddocks to the rear. The property is popular for its convenient semi rural location, whilst being accessible to Kimberley with access to public transport links. Kimberley is a town in Nottinghamshire, England, lying 6 miles northwest of Nottingham along the A610. The town grew as a centre for coal mining, brewing and hosiery manufacturing. There has been no mining or hosiery manufacturing in the town for many years and the local brewery was sold and closed at the end of 2006.One of Kimberley's most notable structures is its unusual war memorial, in the form of a rotunda, which is used as the emblem of Kimberley School. Around the town are many different walking and cycling routes into the woods and countryside. Several traditional pubs including the Nelson & Railway, situated upon Station Road, serve traditional ales. James Street is the town s Victorian Shopping Area boasting traditional shop fronts and traditional style street lighting and The Olde English Chippy. Adjacent to the brewery there is a conservation area of the historic railway cutting from the Great Northern Railway. Sainsburys Supermarket is at the heart of the town near a precinct of shops with a Wilkinsons, Greggs, two Pharmacies, Cassidy s Bakery, Newsagents, Charity Shops, Opticians and Heron Foods supermarket. On Main Street near our Your Move SDS branch is a library, a parade of shops and bars including a Mad Hatters coffee shop and various fine dining experiences including Indian and Italian cuisine. There is a monthly farmers market on Toll Bar Square. The town offers a community feel and hosts community events which are well attended. The area is popular for commuters with the A610 and access to Junctions 26 & 27 of the M1 motorway network and the city tram link with free parking. Regular buses connect the Phoenix tram link at Nuthall to the Giltbrook Retail Park.
