THE DOOMSDAY BOOK

Facebook is suing a company called Teachbook  , which operates a social networking site for teachers, apparently because it has "book" in its name and "competes" with Facebook. Teachbook is described as "a professional community for teachers". Sounds like a threat to Facebook's existence doesn't it?  Well we know of a book that predates Facebook and tells us all about Nottinghamshire. Yes "The Doomsdaybook! The Domesday Book was commissioned in December 1085 by William the Conqueror, who invaded England in 1066. The first draft was completed in August 1086 and contained records for 13,418 settlements in the English counties south of the rivers Ribble and Tees (the border with Scotland at the time).

THE ANGLES HAVE LANDED
The Angles Have
                                      Landed
The Angles came here for a visit 1515 years ago and liked it so much they have stayed.
According to sources such as the History of Bede, after the invasion of Britannia, the Angles split up and founded the kingdoms of the Nord Angelnen (Northumbria), Ost Angelnen (East Anglia), and the Mittlere Angelnen (Mercia).  Confirmation is afforded by English and Danish traditions relating to two kings named Wermund and Offa of Angel, from whom the Mercian royal family claimed descent and whose exploits are connected with Angeln, Schleswig, and Rendsburg. Danish tradition has preserved record of two governors of Schleswig, father and son, in their service, Frowinus (Freawine) and Wigo (Wig), from whom the royal family of Wessex claimed descent. During the 5th century, the Anglii invaded Great Britain, after which time their name does not recur on the continent except in the title of Suevi Angili.

Robin HoodANGLO SAXON NOTTINGHAMSHIRE
The county was settled by Angles around the 5th century, and became part of the Kingdom, and later Earldom, of Mercia.  In the 6th century Nottinghamshire was border country and one of the battlegrounds between Northumbria and Mercia. A battle on the Idle and another on the Trent are recorded in 616 & 679 respectively. Most famous though is the battle of Heathfield in 633 in which Penda of Mercia defeated and killed Edwin of Northumbria, which was near Cuckney between Mansfield & Worksop. The battle of Heathfield secured Mercian suzerainty over Nottinghamshire and Lindsay (Lincolnshire).

However, there is evidence of Saxon settlement at Oxton, near Nottingham, and Tuxford, east of Sherwood Forest. The name first occurs in 1016, but until 1568 the county was administratively united with Derbyshire, under a single Sheriff. In Norman times the county developed malting and woollen industries. During the industrial revolution canals and railways came to the county, and the lace and cotton industries grew. In the 19th century collieries opened and mining became an important economic sector, though these declined after the 1984-5 miners' strike.

Until 1610, Nottinghamshire was divided into eight Wapentakes. Sometime between 1610 and 1719 they were reduced to six – Newark, Bassetlaw, Thurgarton, Rushcliffe, Broxtowe and Bingham, some of these names still being used for the modern districts. Oswaldbeck was absorbed in Bassetlaw, of which it forms the North Clay division, and Lythe in Thurgarton.

                                  Clough StatueNottinghamshire is famous for its involvement with the legend of Robin Hood. This is also the reason for the amount of tourists who visit places like Sherwood Forest, City of Nottingham and the surrounding villages in Sherwood Forest.


Nottinghamshire contains the ancestral home of the poet Lord Byron, Newstead Abbey, which he sold in 1818. It is now owned by Nottingham City Council and open to the public. The author D. H. Lawrence was from Eastwood in Nottinghamshire. The North of the County is also noteworthy because of its connections with the Pilgrim Fathers. William Brewster, for example, came from the village of Scrooby and was influenced by Richard Clyfton who preached at Babworth church. William Morthole is a current resident as well.

Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club is a first class cricket club who play at Trent Bridge in West Bridgford. They won the County Championship in 2005. Nottingham Forest is a Championship football club and Notts County and Mansfield Town are in League Two. Other notable teams are Nottingham Rugby Football club and Nottingham Panthers Ice Hockey Club.

Felley Priory

Felley Priory was founded in 1156. The Priory has close links with Annesley Hall because the church at Annesley (the Old Church) was given to the Canons of Felley in 1158 to save it from destruction. There is an enchanting garden, started in 1976, which contains a large selection of new and interesting plants. All the plants and shrubs sold there are grown in the garden so they can be seen flowering before purchasing.In the spring the whole of the orchard is carpeted with an incredible variety of daffodils and is really worth a visit. Refreshments are always available and the site is only a 3-minute drive from Junction 27 of the M1 on the A608.
At the end of Felley Mill Lane North is Felley Mill Farm and Pond, which is denoted as Strelley Mill in DH Lawrence's novel 'The White Peacock'. At one time a watermill on this site was used by the monks of Felley Priory. Felley Mill Farm is the ideal starting point for an attractive walk around the area.

Eastwood
One of the most famous writers of the 20th century was DH Lawrence, whose groundbreaking novel Lady Chatterley’s Lover changed English literature for ever. When Lawrence was growing up in Eastwood, this part of Nottinghamshire was dominated by the coal mining industry.
The town is very different these days, but take a peep into the past at Durban House, the former headquarters of the Barber Walker Mining Company. The D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum is a just short walk away.

Today a thriving heritage centre, a visit here complements the tour of the museum through its permanent exhibition, depicting community life for the young Lawrence and introducing you to some more of the early influences on his life. The Heritage Centre also includes a contemporary art exhibition space, the Rainbow Gallery, and has a restaurant on the ground floor, with a choice of refreshments.

Edwinstowe

Edwinstowe is a village in the heart of Sherwood Forest Its name means Edwin's resting place because King (and Saint) Edwin of Northumbria's body was hidden in the church after he was killed in the Battle of Hatfield Chase,   in 633. References to Edwinstowe can be found in the Domesday Book. Legend has it that Robin Hood married his sweetheart Maid Marion in St Marys Church,Thoresby Colliery serves as Edwinstowe's main source of employment. However, since the downfall of the British coal industry, tourism is now becoming a major influence on the local economy due to the popularity of the Robin Hood legend and the alleged location of his base at the Major Oak.(See The Statues of Robin & Marion here)

Palace Theatre, Mansfield
The Palace opened in 1910 as the Electric Palace presenting Cine-Variety. In 1950 there were signs of a partial refurbishment of the Palace which would have seated around 600 in stalls and balcony, there were just plain side walls, a very small stage and the follow spotlights were, unusually, operated from a projection room at the rear of the Stalls .Direction was in the hands of Will Collins, this would have been the well known agent Joe Collins who often used his Father's name in business matters. Joe was the father of Joan & Jackie Collins. In 2010, the Mansfield Palace Theatre will be celebrating its 100th birthday! The year will consist of events and celebrations to mark such an achievement.

Newark & Area
Situated on the banks of the River Trent, Newark is a picturesque town steeped in history. The ruins of Newark Castle have had a huge influence on the unique character of the town. Though the current remains were built in the early 12th century, there has been a castle on the site since 1068. Left in ruins by a turbulent history,  the grounds were landscaped in 1887.

Newark’s market place is overlooked by the Georgian Town Hall. The town has become famous for its six annual antiques fairs, held at Newark County Showground, and thousands of antique hunters from across the world descend on the fair’s 4,000 stalls in search of a bargain.Other attractions in the town include the Newark Air Museum – home to 65 aircraft and cockpit sections. Nearby North Clifton is also home to a relaxing meditation centre and Japanese garden.And of course renowned for being the home of Gulliver in Gulliver's Travels.

Amen Corner Karting

We are an established outdoor kart circuit located at Rufford, about 12 miles north of Nottingham. It all began about 17 years ago with two small fun tracks providing arrive and drive for all ages. After many years of plotting and planning we decided to get serious with a new 550m pro-kart circuit which opened in 1999 alongside the other tracks.  A brand new 4000 sq ft corporate building with an office, shop, meeting room and workshops plus a 5000 sq ft roof over the prokarts pits area was added a few years ago.

Beth Shalom Holocaust Centre
When it opened in September 1995, it was Britain's first dedicated Holocaust Memorial and Education Centre.  It was called Beth Shalom, the place of peace.  It soon became a place of education, a place of memory, a place of testimony, a place of art, a place of academia, and much more besides.  The Centre was created in the grounds of a former farmhouse, in the village of Laxton on the edge of Sherwood Forest in North Nottinghamshire.  The surrounding countryside provides a peaceful setting and the Centre itself is set in two acres of beautiful landscaped gardens.

British Horological Institute

In 956, one hundred and ten years before the Norman conquest, King Edwy donated the land on which the present Upton Hall now stands, to Archbishop Oscytel of York. The record of a Hall on the site cannot be found before 1335 and this Hall was occupied by one Robert Bagenham. During the time of the Civil War, circa 1645, Martin Oglethorpe was Squire of Upton and lived in Upton Hall; a small part of Oglethorpe's Elizabethan Hall can still be seen in the present structure. By 1795 the land was owned by the then Lord Carrington.The main part of the present Hall was built in 1828 by Thomas Wright (1773-1845) a banker who was also High Sheriff of Nottinghamshire in 1811. He employed W J Donthome to design a tall stately building exhibiting neo-Greek characteristics in smooth stucco with low pitched slate roofs behind corniced parapets, with a central leaded dome and tetrastyle Ionic portico with pediment.In 1895, John Warwick, a brewer of the Newark firm 'Warwick & Richardson' which used to be in Northgate, Newark, purchased the Hall for his family home. He added a large West Wing incorporating a Ballroom, a Billiards Room, and six further bedrooms with their accompanying dressing rooms. He remodelled the interior of the late Georgian building adding Jacobean style decoration to the Main Hall.In 1936 Sir Albert Ball, one time Mayor of Nottingham and father of the famous holder of the VC, bought the property but never actually took up residence.The Institute bought the Hall from St Joseph's Roman Catholic Theological College in 1972. Since 1952 the Hall has been a listed building and more recently it was classified Grade II* which places it within the top 5% of all listed buildings in the United Kingdom.

    Thoresby Exhibition Centre: Thoresby Gallery
    Thoresby Estate was originally the seat of the Earls and Dukes of Kingston. The imposing Grade I–listed Hall we see today was not the first mansion to be present on the estate, but was designed by the revered Victorian architect Anthony Salvin to be a romantic palace in an ‘Elizabethan style’ for the 3rd Earl Manvers. In recent times the Hall became empty and was put on the English Heritage ‘at risk’ register. However, Warner Holidays acquired the Hall and renovated it and it is now a luxury hotel. Non-residents can take a stroll through the picturesque parkland, visit the courtyard shops and gallery (read more about this) [internal link] and pop into the Bay Tree Café for a bite to eat. Parts of The Hall, such as the vivid and ornate ‘Blue Room’ are accessible to the public, as they have been converted into dining areas.

    Nottingham & Area

    Nottingham is relatively unusual among big manufacturing cities in Britain in having a mediæval and pre-industrial past of equal importance to its more recent one. The first evidence of settlement dates from pre-Roman times, and it is possible that the Romans also lived in the area.
    In Anglo-Saxon times, around 600 AD, the site formed part of the Kingdom of Mercia, when it was known in the Brythonic language as "Tig Guocobauc" meaning "a place of cave dwellings", until falling under the rule of a Saxon chieftain named Snot, whereby it was dubbed "Snotingaham" literally, "the homestead of Snot's people" (Inga = the people of; Ham = homestead). Snot brought together his people in an area where the historic Lace Market in the City can now be found.Nottingham was captured in 867 by Danish Vikings and later became one of the Five Burghs - or fortified towns - of The Danelaw.

    Brian Clough Statue
    Nottingham - home to his beloved Notts Forest football club - is where the memorial has pride of place after the club's supporters led a fund-raising campaign to pay for it. The outspoken, controversial boss nicknamed Old Big 'Ead led the unfashionable, provincial side to a league title, two European Cup wins and other honours.  He had previously led equally unheralded Derby County to a league title.
    The statue, designed by sculptor Les Johnson, is in Old Market Square, where it was unveiled by his widow.Barbara Clough said: "All we can think is how amazed Brian would be at the very idea of a statue. He'd be so touched, he really would." Clough, who also managed Hartlepool, Derby, Leeds United and Brighton, died in Derby City Hospital in 2004 at the age of 69.

    In the modern world, probably the most valuable commodity, and certainly the most talked about has to be oil. It is strange how we have come full circle from a smash and grab raid to divide up the oil in the earliest discoveries, to people worrying about where it will come from next. This museum is dedicated to the study of oil, how it is tapped, and what will happen next in the global industry. It is also a wildlife area that is standing on the site of the first oil field in the country, paid for by the industry.

    Greasley Castle
    was originally a large medieval fortified manor house, founded by Hugh fitz Ralph. In 1340, Nicholas de Cantilupe founded the stone castle, when he was granted licence to crenellate but sadly the site has now been completely dismantled. An 18th century house, with the remains of an underground passage in the basement, stands on the site of the upper ward. In the lower ward, incorporated in later farm buildings, are the only substantial masonry fragments. Defended by a wide ditch, with a counterscarp bank, stands a length of curtain wall, which was flanked by a round angle tower. To the south of the main wards, is a large banked and ditched enclosure, with a series of large rectangular fish-ponds.

    Nottingham Forest Football Club

    Nottingham Forest Football Club is an English professional football club based at The City Ground in West Bridgford a suburb of Nottingham,  . The club is currently in League One of the Coca-Cola Football League and has an illustrious history which encompasses winning two consecutive European Cups, along with the domestic title, two FA Cups and four League Cups.Nottingham Forest takes its name from the Forest Recreation Ground just north of the city centre which is where the team first played and is now the site of the annual Nottingham Goose Fair. The club is often referred to simply as Forest (not to be confused with the entirely unrelated older amateur side, Forest F.C., which is better known as The Wanderers F.C.), the name the club carries on its badge.Notts is the correct abbreviation of Nottinghamshire (hence Notts County), but not of Nottingham itself. Therefore Forest fans dislike the club being referred to as Notts Forest. The appropriate abbreviation of Nottingham Forest is Nott'm Forest. Relegation to English football's third tier made Forest the first European Cup-winning club ever to fall into its country's third division. Many of today's footballing rules and features, including floodlighting, shinpads, and even lettering on the stands have been pioneered by Forest.

    Nottingham Panthers Ice Hockey Club
    The old Nottingham Ice Stadium, now a fading memory, was home to the Panthers from the team's inception up to the turn of the millenium but the saga of the Panthers did not start with the opening of the old barn. Instead of sticks and pucks the completion of the old building coincided with the war and she housed guns and bullets as a makeshift munitions dump.
    A couple of years later plans for the first ever team took shape and a policeman on his rounds in Canada got to hear about the try-outs. Even drafty, damp digs in Nottingham had more appeal than walking the beat in Winnipeg and Les Strongman and eleven colleagues boarded the SS Aquitania on a journey that would change not only their lives but those of thousands of sports fans in a city made famous by a legendary outlaw who robbed the rich to feed the poor. Certainly Les Strongman and his team mates fuelled the imaginations of the sell-out Nottingham crowds and the city soon became a hockey hotbed."Nottingham Panthers supporters are the best in the world and always have been. Even now, 54 years after playing in the opening season in Nottingham, I still see some familiar faces at the home games," said Les, who still lends a hand to try to encourage and develop local wannabe hockey stars of the future.

    Nottingham Playhouse

    The Nottingham Playhouse  was first established as a repertory theatre in the 1950s when it operated from a former cinema. Directors during this period included Val May and Frank Dunlop.The current Modern movement theatre was opened in 1963. The architect was Peter Moro. It was initially controversial as it faces the gothic revival Roman Catholic cathedral designed by Augustus Pugin. Despite the modern external appearance and the circular auditorium walls, the theatre has a conventional proscenium layout, seating an audience of 770. Since 1996, it has been a Grade II* listed building and in 2004, the theatre was sympathetically restored and refurbished with a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The sculpture Sky Mirror by Anish Kapoor was installed between the theatre and the adjacent green space of Wellington Circus in 2001. It is one of the main features of the 160 seat patio area of CAST Restaurant and in autumn 2007 won the Nottingham Pride of Place in a public vote to determine the City's favourite landmark.

In the 1830s they became part of a terrace of three-storey houses, which were eventually demolished in the city redevelopment schemes of the late 1960s. The three original houses, numbers 10,12 and 14, were retained and restored and the site around developed by The Salvation Army to include an elderly persons' home and a goodwill community centre, thus becoming a living memorial to the life and work of William Booth, Founder and first General of The Salvation Army.

    Ravenshead & Area
    Ravenshead is an affluent area of the East Midlands with higher than average property prices and diverse population of professional people, elderly people and skilled workers. Farming was the main occupation in the area until the arrival of the local shops and schools. The only other industry in Ravenshead was sand quarrying, the first of which was opened in 1919 for building sand for Nottingham and Hucknall. Present day occupants of Ravenshead tend to commute out to Mansfield or Nottingham, or are retired.

    The Hutt at Ravenshead

    Built opposite Newstead Abbey, the original building was recorded in 1400 as one of the Royal Huts put up in Sherwood Forest by King John, used to house the men patrolling the forest to protect the King's deer.A tunnel leading from the Hutt to Newstead Abbey was used during the late 17th Century and it is said that the ghost of a monk remains who travelled through the tunnel before being chained to a wall and left to perish!Today the Hutt is a pub and restaurant but still has traditional character and charm - a perfect place for those seeking refreshment and relaxation.

    Retford & Area
    The ancient market town of Retford was granted its first charter (the right to hold a fair) by Henry III in 1246. This was extended by Edward I in 1275 to holding a Saturday market: a tradition that continues today. The town features fine Georgian buildings, a spacious square, and two theatres – the Little Theatre on Wharf Road and the Majestic on Coronation Street. The town played a remarkable part in the story of the Pilgrim Fathers, who fled to America in 1620 after being persecuted for their religious beliefs. Explore their story on the Mayflower Trail, a circular tour starting at nearby Babworth

    North Leverton Windmill
    North Leverton Windmill was first built in 1813. Originally it started by being a very low tower to enable the common sails to have the cloth put on from the ground. Each sail was turned round to the bottom in turn. A major refit in 1884 lifted the tower several feet, and new patent sails and working parts were fitted into the cap now at it's higher present level. The three-storied mill is built of brick and coated with tar to keep out the weather.

    Southwell & Area
    Southwell has many elegant Regency houses but its architectural jewel is the Minster church, boasting some of the best medieval stone carving in England. Just outside town is the Workhouse, an authentic 19th Century institution restored by the National Trust. Find out what life was really like for Victorian paupers in this starkly atmospheric building.
    Ironically for the location of an attraction about poverty, the Nottingham Evening Post recently declared Southwell Nottinghamshire’s millionaire capital. In fact, this prosperous small town of 6,000 has never been short of admirers. Lord Byron once claimed that “I shall never be so happy again as I was in old Southwell.” Centuries on, Sir John Betjeman reported that “the Georgian elegance of Southwell ensures that few small towns are as unspoilt.”

The Park was launched in May 1994, marked by the pit wheels from Sutton colliery installed in the park.The most outstanding feature of Sutton colliery was the pit tip that smouldered and glowed red at night time. Buried deep under the spoil heap was Brierley Pond once alive with minnows, sticklebacks, newts, tadpoles and frogs. Take a walk up Rooley Lane towards the site of the old railway bridge and the former mine. The miners would walk this route each day up to Sutton Colliery.

    Worksop & Area

    Believed to have been in existence since Anglo Saxon times, this unique market town in the north of Nottinghamshire is aptly dubbed the ‘gateway to the Dukeries’. This influence is even reflected in the town centre. At Bridge Street and Bridge Place – the heart of Worksop’s thriving retail community – coloured stone is set into the paving on the pedestrian streets, depicting the local heraldic crests. There is also a paved maze featuring a heraldic lion and unicorn, giving the town a sense of real historical character.The Augustian Priory of St Cuthbert and St Mary was founded in 1103 and the surviving part consists of the nave, western front and twin towers, built in the late 12th century.

    Clumber Park
    One of the largest country parks in Europe, covering over 3800 acres, Clumber Park was once the seat of the Dukes of Newcastle-under-Lyme. The grand house built in 1770 was demolished in 1938, though the stable block (now used as a café), walled garden and dramatic gothic chapel remain. The National Trust now owns the estate and, through a careful management programme, ensures that the diverse landscape of heathland, woods and parkland is preserved for the public. Highlights of the Estate include the vast lake and the beautiful 'Lime Tree Avenue' - a sight not to be missed in Autumn.

    Mr Straw's House
    Fascinating 1920's tradesman’s home. This modest semi-detached Edwardian house was the family home of well-to-do grocers William and Florence Straw from 1923. It is remarkable because the Straws’ two sons preserved it almost unaltered till it came to the National Trust in 1990. The interior with its 1920s wallpaper, heavy Victorian furniture and household objects provides a rare glimpse into interwar middle-class life.

The Site has a popular play area and enjoys an attractive setting surrounded by woodland. Children will enjoy Clumber Park as it is part of what was once Sherwood Forest, and there are plenty of reminders of the Forest's most famous resident, Robin Hood. Call at the Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre, 10 miles drive from the site, to find out all about him, and to see the Great Oak where he is said to have hidden, and then visit Nottingham to experience a most imaginative audio/visual exhibition called 'The Tales of Robin Hood'. You are involved in scenes including a horse ride and a rescue - the children love it. http://www.caravanclub.co.uk/Planning+Your+trip/UK+Trips/Site+Search+and+Book/Club+Sites/Site+Detail.htm?csid=CLUMBER+PARK
