Nottingham Castle

 

The original castle was founded by William the Conqueror in 1067 but very little remains of this. The present 'castle' owes its existence to first Duke of Newcastle who built it as his Ducal Palace. The 'castle' is a museum and amongst other exhibits it houses the Worcestershire & Sherwood Foresters museum, and an art gallery that along with others, displays some very interesting old oil paintings of the city.  The castle site was chosen for its dominating position and the walls and ramparts still offer one of the best vantage points from which to view the city. 

Nottingham  Castle is well worth a visit

Ground staff are to be congratulated on their fine achievements this year which should greatly contribute towards high marks in the judging for the 'Cities in Bloom Competition', hopefully making up for the shortage of colour in the NEW Old Market Square.
