Station Vicinity, Mansfield, Notts.
Station Vicinity, Mansfield, Notts.
This is the oldest part of The Midland Hotel. It was built in 1805 as an lunatic asylum for men and had high walls around it. It was known as Broom House until The Midland Railway Company purchased it in 1862 and converted it into a hotel. The hotel yard served as a venue for auctions, including for the sale of horses. There is a large modern extension to the photographer's right and as a result of this, the establishment now serves as a function venue and public house. Behind the tall "Mansfield Station" sign are modern premises housing the local probation service offices, whilst on the left is the booking office entrance to the railway station.
