Pursgloves of Nottingham - [NOTM]

"Snotingaham" was the Homestead of Snot's people around 600 AD, also known as "Tigguo Cobauc", the cave dwellings. In the 10th Century AD, this was an important crossing over the River Trent and in the 11th Century a castle was built to control the crossing.  St Peters church was built in the 12th century.  In 1449 the town was given a charter for self-governance "for eternity".

The city has moved from an agricultural base to a centre for textiles and lace and other manufacturing industries.  It includes the towns of Basford, Bulwell, Carlton, Lenton, Radford, Sneinton, Standard Hill, West Bridgford and Wilford.  The city has strong connections with the Robin Hood legend.
