Book Tour Part 4: Nottingham cont

Nottingham Castle was built across the valley from the Saxon town by the Normans, and was a critical part of the royal estate up to Richard III's time. And it was from Nottingham castle that Richard III marched to Bosworth.

It's on a sandstone ridge and the sandstone is full of tunnels. Could recommend this highly enough: and here are a few pics.
