About this product
- DescriptionEvery corner of Nottingham is rich in history and if the streets could talk they might tell of the people and events they have witnessed. Many ancient secrets have remained untold, such as the purpose of the great Viking 'long-house' found beneath the site of a demolished Victorian factory, and who built the ancient mound that once marked the site of the spot where a King of England raised his standard. Before the great railway inventions of pioneers like Isambard Kingdom Brunel and George Stephenson, a 17th century entrepreneur built Britain's first ever railway in Nottingham. But who was the man behind the railway and why did his great invention fail? Perhaps the city's greatest secret of all lies beneath its streets; a labyrinth of over 500 man-made caves. Visitors to Nottingham are often told t to stamp their feet too hard as they never quiet kw where they will end up. Father and son authors, Frank and Joe Earp, are privy to these and many more of Nottingham's secrets. Come with them as they share their kwledge within the pages of this book.
