In 1973 The Promenade, Robin Hood Terrace and Campbell Grove were officially designated as a General Improvement Area, which saved these streets from the wrecking the ball. This endowed the City of Nottingham with an impressive heritage that now spans over 160 years.

Some of this history can be read in the very fabric of the buildings, while the archival documents point to significant changes over the decades. Our oral history recordings can now show the depth of community life and some very human responses to this location.

Limited on street parking available, short walk from the city centre. The location is nearby the NCT 39 bus route.
