    Spotlight on: Thrumpton Hall

    With a mesmerizing history dating back to the 16th century, Thrumpton Hall is simply brimming with character and charm. Beginning as a medieval house belonging to the Powdrill family who were friends with Anthony Babington from the closely located village of Kingston. He became the instigator of the Babington Plot to put Mary on the throne instead of Elizabeth I. Anthony Babington was hanged, drawn and quartered and the Powdrills escaped with only the loss of the property.

    Thrumpton Hall then fell into the hands of the Pigotts who lived there from 1605 to 1685 for many happy years before being forced to

    Horsing around at Southwell Racecourse

    With race season in full swing, we asked Southwell Racecourse for an interview with one of their racing stars. Read on for some thoroughbred answers from Tenancy the horse.

    Where are your favorite places to horse around in Nottinghamshire?

    As you know I live next door to Clumber Park, therefore after I have finished my morning training I like nothing better than to visit the local country parks and to have a gallop around Sherwood Forest.

    Sherwood Pines is brilliant with over 3300 acres and has a wide range of activities and includes a cafe, cycle trail, cycle hire and children’s adventure playground. I am partial to a bit of music and

    Elemental Force battles through rain to dazzle resilient crowds at Newark

    Crowds gathered once again for another sell-out performance of Elemental Force last Saturday. With the handsome rugged ruins of Newark Castle the chosen backdrop for the fourth performance in the series, the stage was set to play out local history with a mix of light, fire, sound and motion.

    Despite the torrential downpour, a large crowd gathered complete with an armour of umbrellas and a steely determination to enjoy the show, and were not left disappointed. We asked hardy spectator Robyn Pond for her version of the evening’s historical events.

  • Bromley House Library 4 Posted on 17 January 2013

    Spotlight on: Bromley House Library

    Tucked away amongst the more modern buildings on Long Row in Nottingham City Centre is Bromley House Library. It is not until you enter the front doors of the 250 year old building that you can fully appreciate and be amazed by many of its original Georgian features.

    The library itself has been in operation since 1816 and moved to the Bromley House premises in 1822. The building was formerly built and owned by the Smith banking family in 1752 and many of its internal unique historical features can still be seen today.

    Bromley House is in fact a subscription library, one of only 30 such libraries in the UK, but still opens
