The City History Trails: Nottingham

New Book Available From June 2014:

City History Trails: Nottingham

by Rehannah Mian‎


“This book was very much a thoroughly enjoyable read. If you enjoy history and more specifically Nottingham history this book will be ideal. Filled with everything which makes Nottingham famous: caves, Nottingham castle, architecture, the lace industry, Nottingham literary heroes, crime & punishment, the arts and of course Robin Hood, this book covers it all. What makes this book even more appealing is the fact that it has needed to be written now for the last few years. Nottingham has virtually lost all of its old industries, such as the lace industry, Players and Raleigh. With the loss of these industries with have lost the local income and benefits these businesses brought to Nottingham. However, tourism has now slowly replaced these old industries to become a vital asset to the local Nottingham economy. This book is essential to any visiting tourist to the city, as well as a ‘must have’ to any local. All trails in the book are straight forward and point out all that is interesting  in the city, within no more than a mile radius of Nottingham’s Old Market Square.  This book comes highly recommended by me and will certainly be a book I will continue to refer back to many times regarding Nottingham history”.

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.
