1880s

1880

"Tower House" 53 Park Row, Nottingham

Alterations to an existing house. The south-west frontage of the house remains in a Classical style. Fothergill added a distinctive tower to the Park Row side. Brand seems to attribute the entire building to T.C. Hine, but to me, the features of the tower are distinctively Fothergill. It is listed and the listing description gives the date of the original house as 1827-33 and says "probably designed by PF Robinson and built by William Paterson for the fourth Duke of Newcastle. Altered c1860, by TC Hine, raised and altered c1880 by Watson Fothergill."

1882

Nottingham and Notts Bank, Thurland Street, Nottingham

After winning the commission to build this new Head Office for the Company, Fothergill went on to build a number of branches in towns across the East Midlands. This is a difficult building to photograph as it is large and Thurland Street is quite narrow. Most attempts are from Pelham Street, but from there most of the picture ends up being of the 1925 extension which continues the original round the corner. The original building is symmetrical with the large tower in the centre and terminating at each end at the gables.

1883

"Mortimer House" Castle Road, Nottingham

A terrace of six houses with ground floor shops between Hounds Gate and Castle Gate. It is notable for the complex roofline, due to the sloping nature of the site. This is possibly the Fothergill building most likely to be noticed (and perhaps photographed) by tourists visiting Nottingham as is opposite the Robin Hood statue. The Hounds Gate corner has been a pub (with various names) for some years. One of the middle shops was a Post Office in the 1970s.

1884

Coffee Tavern and Institute, High Street, Hucknall

A sadly neglected example of his work, extensively modified. Since my visit it has been acquired by The Hucknall Tourism And Regeneration Group for use as an Information Centre, and they have begun some restoration.

21 and 23 Newcastle Drive, The Park, Nottingham

I need to revisit these to be convinced that they are Fothergill designs.

1887

Nottingham and Notts. Bank, Kirk Gate, Newark on Trent

After reading the description given on the grade II listing of this one (LBS Number: 385040) I was looking forward to finding it. I was not disappointed what an outpouring of confidence this building is.
