    Cool photos! Never been to Nottingham proper myself. Only visited the university there, but never strayed outside the campus. That is one old pub!

    Love the pictures. What, no statue of the Sheriff of Nottingham with an arrow in his butt?

  6. Very nice, love the buildings… except the houses on Lake Trent since they’re almost carbon copies of each other 😉

    …and will you call me crazy too? I walk Eva all the time in just a t-shirt/workout pants when it’s 0C outside.

    Great photos. Loved the Robin Hood statue (I’m a huge fan of the Robin Hood legend) and the Olde Inn. Also had a chuckle over the bird, LOL. I feel like I’ve been on a tour bus. Very cool!

    How cool to see a piece of history like that. I’d be walking around trying to imagine what it was like back in the 1100’s.

    Lovely photos, makes me a bit homesick.

    Love these pics. Makes me want to go back and live in England. So much more civilized. This looks like a gorgeous little bit of country. I never made it there, but would love to go. The Robin Hood statue seems a little racy with all his knees showing. LOL What’s the name of the inn that dates from 1189? Maybe I can work that into one of my historicals. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing!

Aw come on say something....
