About Nottinghamshire

Nottinghamshire may conjure up romantic images of walking through Sherwood Forest in the footsteps of Robin Hood; of honourable thieves in leafy glades relieving rich nobles of their purses for more equitable distribution. A dream, maybe, with the great oaks and beeches of the Sherwood Forest of old now mostly gone. The Forestry Commission have planted stands of fir and pine, but good access and some remnants of mature deciduous woodland ensure this is one of the best walking areas in Nottinghamshire. Farnsfield and Edwinstowe are good areas from which to explore the Forest. The Dukeries, in the north of Sherwood Forest, is an area which is particularly attractive and full of interest. So named because most of the land hereabouts was owned by the Dukes of Norfolk, Portland, Newcastle and Kingston, these vast estates have now largely gone, but there are important remnants. Clumber Park (NT), formerly the home of the Dukes of Newcastle, has a wide expanse of parkland, peaceful woods, open heath and rolling farmland with a serpentine lake at its heart.

What more traditional can one get than "The Robin Hood Folk Club", and at the most modern, The Royal Centre Nottingham puts on pop concerts. For hands on classical music lovers, there is the Nottingham Symphony Orchestra and Nottingham Philharmonic orchestra. And for the jazz aficionado, there is the Nottingham Rhythm Club......... Jazz For Listening And Dancing since 1941!!
