The largest city in the East Midlands, Nottingham has been an important centre in the area since the Middle Ages. The old Saxon borough was built around the area known today as the Lace Market and an adjoining settlement developed around the Norman castle, famously occupied by the Sheriff of Nottingham in the legendary Robin Hood stories. In later centuries Nottingham became a major manufacturer of lace and several other famous names in industry also made their home in Nottingham including Boots the chemists, Raleigh cycles and Player’s the cigarette manufacturers. The city also has a strong cultural legacy, associated with writers such as D. H. Lawrence and Alan Sillitoe. Today, with two universities, many new industries and commercial developments, a lively city centre served by a new tram system, and a UK sporting centre with the oldest professional football team in the world, Notts County, and Nottingham Forest, twice winners of the European Cup under Brian Clough, and the test cricket venue of Trent Bridge, Nottingham is a vibrant, modern British city proud of its heritage including the Goose Fair which is still held every year.


This fascinating A-Z tour of Nottingham, its interesting people, places and historic events, is fully illustrated with photography and will appeal to all those with an interest in this city in the East Midlands.
