An Introduction to Nottingham

Nottingham, on the river Trent, is an old market town that has also played host to both the Victorian lace industry and the Tales of Robin Hood. The market square remains the largest square in England. Although the town dates back to the 1100's and has an ancient castle, the majority of the impressive architecture is in the Victorian and gothic revival styles as this era was when the town was of greatest importance.

Nottingham History


Nottingham began in the 6th century as a small Saxon settlement. In the late 9th century the Danes conquered North East and Eastern England. They turned Nottingham into a fortified settlement or burgh.

In 1067 William the Conqueror built a wooden castle to guard Nottingham. (It was rebuilt in stone in the 12th century). Nottingham grew rapidly after the Norman Conquest. 
In Medieval times the main industry was wool making with some tilers and potters as well as goldsmiths. In the Victorain era the alce industry became very important in Nottingham.

Robin Hood is thought to have lived in Sherwood Forest near Nottingham. The story of Robin Hood is first recorded in the 14th century and it is likely it is based on a real person or possibly several real people.
