Old Broadmarsh & Narrow Marsh: Turning Back the Pages

Photo: Illustrative image for the 'Old Broadmarsh & Narrow Marsh: Turning Back the Pages' page

Let this book of wonderfully atmospheric photographs take you back into the bustling, overcrowded and ever-changing streets and alleys of the old Marshes of Nottingham.

Remember Sussex Street, Red Lion Street, Narrow Marsh and Drury Hill?   Remember the Severn’s building that once stood on Middle Pavement?  Remember when the Broad Marsh Shopping Centre was being built in the 1970s?  It housed a major Co-op store and there was a ‘waterfall’ on the Lower Mall.   If you lived in Nottingham in the 1960s and 70s you won’t want to miss this publication.  Few of the images have ever been published before.  There’s even a photo of an escalator arriving for installation at the new Broad Marsh Centre!  A huge new shopping mall is now being planned for Broad Marsh – don’t miss this chance to capture the areas rich and varied past before it entirely disappears!
