50 Gems of Nottinghamshire

The History & Heritage of the Most Iconic Places

Availability: Out of stock

The historic county of Nottingham offers contains many attractions within its borders. Sherwood Forest is famous as the home of the legendary Robin Hood in the Middle Ages, but it also contains the historic city of Nottingham and the heritage of an industrial past, from cloth making, including lace, to coal and iron-ore 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 David 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, Nottingham Castle and the oldest inn in England built into its walls, Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, the beautiful Southwell Minster, to the Goose Fair, the Framework Knitters Museum and the Mushy Pea Stall and many more.
