Nottingham Streets


Maltmill Lane

This lane runs between Canal Street and Cliff Road and is one of the last surviving original streets of what was the old Narrow Marsh slum area.  This old burned out building also appears to be a survivor of that era.  If anyone can shed light on its original use, please contact me.

The lane takes its name from a water mill that stood somewhere in this area.  In ancient times the River Leen was diverted from its natural course to the Trent and made to flow past the bottom of the Castle rock and then along the route of what is now Cliff Road which is the road where the black car is seen parked.  To the right are the last few remaining railway arches of the line from Weekday Cross tunnel & Victoria Station
