WALK #3 – Ruddington to Clifton’s Greatest Hits

The third walk in this series takes us from Ruddington towards its nearest neighbour.  Clifton has its roots as a village, existing now within the Nottingham City boundary but growing up initially around Clifton Hall, an ancient family seat.  It was much enlarged by the building of a large council estate in the 1950s and is now a vibrant suburban community, enhanced by its new tram route and, arguably, the dualling of the A453 which reduced its seemingly permanent congestion during rush hour.

Bus Boost for Ruddington

Nottingham City Transport is set to enhance its Navy 3 service to Ruddington later this month. It’s part of a raft of changes to the Clifton bus network following an in-depth review of the impact of the new tram line running in the area. In some parts this has reduced bus use by over 30%. But the changes to be implemented on the 29th of January are good news for Ruddington bus passengers – who’ll actually benefit from an improved service.  The Navy 3 will have a revised timetable, with Monday to Saturday…
