    Episode 19: Nottingham, city of caves

    Episode 19: Nottingham, city of caves

    Nottingham has a huge number of manmade caves. Many have been destroyed and some still grace the city whilst others are waiting to be discovered. This episode explores some of the tales of subterranean Nottingham, both factual and fictional.


    Very special thanks to Nottingham’s city archaeologist Scott Lomax for providing the information that this episode is built upon. We really appreciate his time and expertise. Scott would love to hear from you if you have memories of taking shelter from air raids in Nottingham caves. You can contact him via email here: Scott.Lomax@nottinghamcity.gov.uk

    Episode 18: Henry

    Episode 18: Henry

    Henry grew-up in St Ann’s, Nottingham, in the 1960s. At the time St Ann’s was an overcrowded area with poorly maintained and cramped council housing. The decision was made to rehouse the residents in new estates like Bilborough, demolish St Ann’s and rebuild. For Henry, this exodus to a new, unexplored land represented a stark change, and this episode explores his reflections on old St Ann’s, the new Bilborough estate, outside toilets, and doilies on coffins.


    Huge thanks to TV, film, comedy and poetry legend Henry Normal for sharing these thoughts on his childhood with us. He was incredibly generous with his time, and it’s very greatly appreciated.

    Episode 17: Harwood

    Episode 17: Harwood

    Ernest Harwood Greenhalgh was born in Mansfield in 1849 and went on to have a distinguished footballing career with the recently formed Notts County as well as playing for England. His family owned a successful business and it’s likely many current Mansfieldians would have relatives who’d worked for the Greenhalghs.


    The Greenhalghs owned Field Mill, which would later become home to Mansfield Town FC, meaning the family’s history is intertwined with those of two traditional Nottinghamshire footballing powers.

    Episode 16: Mary

    Mary lived in Bulwell from her birth in 1878 through to her peculiar death in 1950. None of the locations key to her life and death are present in modern-day Bulwell, which seems to add to the enigma around her.


    This episode features the Mason’s Arms, Bulwell, Hucknall, The Old Buildings, The Buildings, The Moon Hotel, Musters Road, 11 Rufford Walk, 8 Brookside, Colston Road, and Austin Street.

An absolute joy

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

andygo27 ,

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.
