This collection is a fact-filled and entertaining guide to forty of Nottinghamshire's historic sites. Not only including entries on its most famous locations and characters, but also revealing facts about the lesser-known places that have played a key role in the county's history, this volume puts modern-day Nottinghamshire into its true historical context. A historic site is not just one that is ancient, but one that has been important to the locals, the county and even the nation on a larger scale. Each of the places discussed has a fascinating story to tell, such as Eakring Oilwell, which was crucial to victory in the Second World War, or Stoke Field, where in 1487 a battle took place to decide who would be King of England. With full contact and access details, and illustrated with both archive images and modern photographs, this book will inspire both residents and visitors alike to discover more about the history of one of England's most fascinating counties.
