"Queen's Chambers" Queens Street/Long Row, Nottingham




Whenever talking about Fothergill to someone from Nottingham who has not heard of him, this is the building that I describe. The usual reply is "Oh yes, I know that one". Although at the time it would have been un-restored and covered with eighty year's worth of industrial city grime I recall appreciating this building when a student in the city in the mid 1970s. At that time Long row along the north side of Slab Square and the bottom section of King Street was not pedestrianised as they are now and the feature small tower protruding from the corner supported by its pillar was far more evident as everyone on foot had to pass beneath it and people on the top deck of a bus turning from Long Row into King Street could have cleaned the windows as they passed.

1899




Carlton Laundry, Marhill Road, Gedling




As with the Cattle Market building in Mansfield the original purpose of this building is obscure. Its listing Has it as a Laundry and dye works. Brand however states that it was originally a brewery. Whichever is right, it is now converted to residential use.
