100 Years Ago
The whole of Spring Lane was part of Swannington as was the Thornborough area such as the Jolly Colliers Inn. Currently the Parish boundary ends just before the Incline. Spring Lane led to the Midland Brickworks in Thornborough Road. The railway track of what was originally the Leicester & Swannington Railway went across the road as the Incline was still in operation to lower coal twice a week to the Calcutta pumping station.
