This is a familiar route to me as I travelled from Derby to Nottingham for three years while working at the archive at Carlton Television on Lenton Lane, Nottingham.

This short film shows the opening of the A52 Borrowash bypass near Derby.
We see the ceremonial opening of a new road. A convoy of official cars pass a sign that says A52 Borrowash bypass. We then see a new bridge and a point of view shot from a car driving along the new section of road.
Another Borrowash bypass on the A52 was opened in 1980, presumably updating or superseding the section shown in this film. I think, at the end of the film you can see Spondon Methodist Church on the left.
It would be great to know more about the opening of the road, if you have any memories of this, let us know, either below, or on Twitter or Facebook.
