An absolute joy

Every one of these has been heartwarming. So well researched with great narrative and lovely soundtrack

Fantastic!

An absolute must for any local and social history fan. Wonderful quirky stories of Nottingham folk of the past who walked the same streets as we do. The narration makes you feel you’re part of the stories. It’s very clear that a whole lot of love and care has been put into this podcast. Looking forward the next episode.

Unexpected gem

You might get a little more from this hidden history podcast if you know Nottingham but it’s not necessary to enjoy the tales of everyday folk. Really interesting, I’m looking forward to the future episodes.
