Nottingham Buildings

 


The Assembly Rooms

9 Low Pavement

This majestic frontage with its four Corinthian columns is all that is left of The Nottingham Assembly Rooms that were used by the gentry for dances and playing cards. The original building dated from the 18th Century. It was altered in 1790 by renowned architect John Carr, further altered in 1807 and re-fronted in 1836 by Thomas Winter. It was further converted in the 20th Century  and served as a Post Office.  It is now part of the M & S store to its left

Some notes that I have found on the building refer to it as being No.7 but the number on the door today is clearly No. 9.
