"The Illustrated History of Nottingham's Suburbs" shows how the countryside, farms and villages around Nottingham developed into the urban streets, residential areas, shopping districts and industrial estates that are so familiar today.

In the course of the last 200 years, the outskirts of the city have been transformed and expanded in a way that would astonish Nottingham residents of just a few generations ago.

In this detailed and fully illustrated account of the suburbs, Geoffrey Oldfield offers a concise history of each district, but he also features local anecdotes and folklore.

His survey will be essential reading and reference for everyone who takes an interest in their neighbourhood and in the complex, surprising history of the city itself.

The history of districts as diverse as Basford, Bulwell, Lenton, Sneinton, The Park, Radford, Arnold, Carlton, Beeston and West Bridgford are recalled in his survey.
