Welcome to the Nottinghamshire History website

"An exceeding pleasant shire" - John Evelyn portraitNottinghamshire is an often unappreciated English county, most unfairly dismissed by that renowned wit and scholar, Jeremy Clarkson, as "a non-county, like Staffordshire - just there to fill the gaps." The Nottinghamshire History website attempts to counter ignorance like this by making accessible a wide range of books and articles reflecting the rich and fascinating history of this part of the midlands.

The website also provides local historians and genealogists with downloadable materials such as maps and also links to other useful online resources.
