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” as they say.

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 1980’s and 1990’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 in 2008. Luckily Bob Trubshaw and Frank Earp managed to save some of the Hidden History Team’s vast collection of photographs, postcards, slides and research. The result of the recover and preservation of the collection, led to this website being created.

On this site you will find a series of history, folklore and archaeological related articles and information. We try to upload weekly articles, news and photographs mainly about old Nottinghamshire. We are constantly adding to this site and sincerely hope that it brings pleasure to those who view our Nottingham Hidden History page.

    This is a great project. I remember Paul Nix well, it’s great this project is going strong again. Good luck with it!

  2. Hi Wild Nottingham,

    Thanks for your comment and support. The Team have been reformed for about a year and a half now and everything is going well. I think Paul Nix would have approved, his work and memory live on through this page. Several of his articles from his original website have recently been republished on here, so his work is not lost!


    The Nottingham Hidden History Team.
