WARSOP'S Carrs Local Nature Reserve has been announced as the attraction local folk are most proud of –– after a resounding victory in an internet vote.
The two-month Pride of Mansfield poll on Mansfield District Council's website allowed users to choose their favourite from 10 local attractions, including A Spire for Mansfield –– the towering stainless feather on West Gate, Mansfield Museum and Titchfield Park.
The Carrs, which was recognised as a Local Nature Reserve in 2005, was the runaway winner, claiming more than half the votes –– with The Viaduct which runs through Mansfield coming second.
