    My Favourite Spots in Nottinghamshire…

    Today we introduce a new section on our blog in which we will share people’s favourite places and favourite things to do in Nottinghamshire.

     

     

     

    We start our section with The Woman in Black’s director James Watkins, originally from Bakersfield, Nottingham. His favourite places in Nottinghamshire are:

    ” – Newstead Abbey: totally Byronic…
    – The Broadway Cinema: a great indie cinema- passionate about film- check out Screen 4 designed by Sir Paul Smith.
    Wollaton Hall: the ultimate house on a hill, stunning parklands, museum and concert venue. And, rumour has it, Batman’s new Wayne Manor.”

    The Woman in Black stars Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and is signed Hammer, Britain’s legendary film studio

    I’ve played cricket at Newstead Abbey a few times and each time it
