The historic county of Nottinghamshire offers many attractions within its borders. Sherwood Forest may be famous as the home of the legendary Robin Hood, but the county also contains the historic city of Nottingham and an industrial heritage that ranges from lacemaking to coal mining. Nottinghamshire was also the home of writers D. H. Lawrence and Lord Byron as well as the birthplace of the founder of the Salvation Army, William Booth.
In 50 Gems of Nottinghamshire author Dave Mooney explores the many places, and their history, that make this part of the country so special, including natural features, buildings, annual celebrations and events unique to the county and places of historical interest. Alongside justly famous attractions, others will be relatively unknown but have an interesting story to tell. These range from natural splendours such as Cresswell Crags and Attenborough Nature Reserve, the beautiful Southwell Minster, to the Goose Fair and the Mushy Pea Stall and many more.
