Nottingham


Had a trip to Nottingham today – there seemed to be some kind of morris dancing festival on. It’s a very characterful place, which I always feel is more like a large historic town than a city in the mould of Manchester or Birmingham. I did a number of pubs – the most memorable were the two Castle Rock houses, the News House and the Vat & Fiddle. Have Tynemill now metamorphised into Castle Rock? Sad to see the impressive Queens Hotel opposite the station, once a Shipstones’ stronghold, now closed and turned into a “Floor covering centre”.

  1. Near the castle the is some kind of religious bookshop or print shop, not sure what it is, that advertises "Christian duplication" in the window.

    The Salutation is worth a visit.
