NEW WALK FOR 2020 from the producer of the Watson Fothergill Walk and the Hine Hike.
The Carrington Crawl: Victorian Nottingham’s most flamboyant architect not only helped shape the city centre with commercial landmarks, he also designed dwellings. Explore some of the domestic architecture of Watson Fothergill and his assistant Lawrence G. Summers with tour guide Lucy Brouwer. Discover more about the buildings, those who built them, and the lives of the people who lived in them.
This walk will begin at the junction of Mansfield Road and Mapperley Road, outside St Andrew’s Church, it will then look at some of Fothergill’s houses in Mapperley Park, including the site of his own family home, continuing to Sherwood Rise, then returning to Carrington to finish up, after a walk of approximately 2 hours / 3km, at Clawson Lodge on Mansfield Road, where the Ukrainian Cultural Centre will invite us inside to take tea or coffee.
Start is on Mapperley Road near junction with Mansfield Road, outside St Andrew’s Church.
