Creswell Crags – home to Britain’s only known Ice Age cave art
Creswell Crags is a world famous archaeological site, set in a limestone gorge with caves and a lake. It is home to Britain’s only known Ice Age cave art. This is thought to date back 13,000 years and the images of birds, bison, deer and horse provide a glimpse into the fascinating life of our distant relatives. There is plenty to see and do, whether you want a relaxing picnic or a walk.
Southwell Minster – with some of the best medieval stone carvings in England
Southwell Minster, the Cathedral of Nottinghamshire, is rich in historical and architectural interest. It provides fine examples of the main styles of architecture, particularly Norman and early English. The latter is very evident in the 13th century Chapter House, one of the Minsters most glorious features -The “Leaves of Southwell” have been documented as some of the best medieval stone carvings in England, and represent oak, ivy, hawthorn, grape, hops, and other flora.
Ruddington Framework Knitters Museum - A unique collection of restored cottages and workshops arranged around a garden courtyard.
Walk round to see how a local Victorian community lived and worked, watch live demonstrations of their machines, try your hand at knitting on a 19th-century sock machine, see a collection of hosiery spanning 200 years, perhaps watch a short film, and then relax with a cup of tea in the garden or teashop before checking out the museum craftshop.
Bromley House – for all you book lovers
Since 1822 a narrow door tucked among the crowded streets of Angel Row has been the entrance to one of Nottingham's historic gems – Bromley House Library, an anachronistic reminder of Nottingham's intellectual past. The library is members only – however you can visit by prior arrangement – see their website for further details.
Ashfield – Nottinghamshire’s Hidden Valleys
On the far west of Nottinghamshire, Ashfield borders Derbyshire and shares trails and footpaths with Bolsover, gateway to the Peak District National Park.
Old Teversal is one of the most unspoilt villages in Nottinghamshire. The Teversal Trail is a beautiful hidden gem and definitely well worth a visit.
Away from the major country parks, areas of Sherwood Forest still exist as smaller areas of woodland. With many of these areas having public rights of way and bridlepaths, you can still enjoy some of the lesser known places linked to a once truly great forest.
