Status: Active - 2 volumes published

Like many counties, work in Nottinghamshire took place before the First World War, and two general volumes were published in 1906 and 1910. Attempts to research and write the topographical volumes failed in the difficult financial climate after the First World War, and nothing further has been undertaken since that time.

Nottinghamshire County Council made available some funds for 2009-11 to start work on the topographical volumes. It asked Mr Philip Riden, a native of the county and currently the VCH Derbyshire county editor (having previously also worked in Northamptonshire) to work in Nottinghamshire one day a week so that local studies can be prepared.

Initially these will be published in digital format, but it is hoped that sufficient enthusiasm will be roused for work to go forward at a level which will secure future funding and widen the range of work.

If you are interested in knowing more about the project, contact Mr Riden at, or 01246 554026
