New Book Available From April 2014:

Nottingham From Old Photographs

by Joseph Earp

Nottingham FOP CVR

The City of Nottingham as we know it today began life as an Anglo Saxon settlement. By the late 19th century Nottingham had developed into a thriving City. This book through photographs, documents and other images reflects the change from the early settlement of Tigguo Cobauc (a place of cave dwellings) to one of the leading Cities in England.

Most of the photographs and research within these pages have come from the collection of the late Paul Nix of the Nottingham Hidden History Team. The work of the Hidden History Team exceeds well over forty years of work relating to Nottingham local history. The book will appeal to both the casual reader, local historians and anyone interested in the local heritage of Nottingham. Combined with the authors own collection and never before published documents, images and photographs from the Paul Nix Collection, we see a new side to Nottingham, an ever changing City past, present and future.

About nottinghamhiddenhistoryteam

Originally formed in 1965 to try to save or at least record before destruction the cave sites continually discovered during the major redevelopment of the City that took place in Nottingham in the 1960′s. Almost every day new sites were unearthed and destroyed before anyone was notified; last thing they wanted was someone telling them to stop what they were doing; TIME is MONEY. The word HIDDEN in the Team’s title is because a lot of what was being invisibly lost in the redevelopment was our early history in the caves, they are under most, if now all, of Nottingham. In the 80’s and 90’s the Team conducted with the help of Dr Robert Morrell and Syd Henley, research and work on Nottingham’s history, folklore and local archaeology. The Team published quarterly magazines on their findings. The Team lapsed for a few years after the death of Paul Nix who was the team leader for thirty plus years. The Team has reformed and is now back working on Nottingham local history. On this blog you will find a series of history, folklore and archaeological related articles and information. Most of the material published will be specifically related to Nottingham/shire local history.
