Nottingham Miscellany

 

 

 

This and the next seven pictures show the unique medieval leather tannery, the most interesting section in my view.

Supported by a central pillar this cave has a series of rock cut vats in which the hides were processed.

Taking into account the putrefying raw hides, and the human urine that was used in the tanning process the stench down here must have been unbelievable!
