Description

An evening walk to explore Victorian Nottingham.

Why did the Victorians think a mortgage was like a monkey?

How can one architect have two names on one building?

What links one of Nottingham's foremost Victorian architects with Mick Jagger and Thomas Hardy?

All these and more questions will be answered on a guided walk around the buildings of architect Watson Fothergill in Nottingham City Centre. Learn about the buildings of one of Nottingham's most prominent Victorian architects, his signature style and the influence of the Gothic on the city's buildings. A walk of approximately 3km (1.86 miles)

Celebrate Fothergill's birthday 12 July 1841!

There will be a table booked in the pub where you are welcome to linger for drinks or food (not included).


Participants are asked to come prepared for appropriate weather eventualities and to wear footwear suitable for city walking.
