Description

This illustrated history portrays one of England's great cities. It provides a nostalgic look at Nottingham's past and highlights the special character of some of its most important historic sites. The photographs are taken from the Historic England Archive, a unique collection of over 12 million photographs, drawings, plans and documents covering England's archaeology, architecture, social and local history. Pictures date from the earliest days of photography to the present and cover subjects from Bronze Age burials and medieval churches to cinemas and seaside resorts. Historic England: Nottingham shows the city as it once was, from its streets, squares and alleyways to its churches, theatres and famous sporting venues. World famous because of its historic association with the iconic Sherwood Forest, Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham, the city has been home to major industries too, with Nottingham lace, bicycles and Player's cigarettes notable in times past. Today, it boasts two major universities, world-class theatres, two professional football clubs and an international cricket ground at Trent Bridge. Nottingham remains a vibrant and important city and this book will help you discover its colourful and fascinating history.
