Cliff ton That photo of York immediately made me think "Nottingham could have had something like this in the shape of Drury Hill".

I have been saying that since the day it was destroyed. That and all the other historic features of that area. I believe there was a time when Long Stairs was the only way into the 'then' town. All the caves ... the many industries .... arghh!

It's pointless. They have never cared and never will. It's all about money and greed.

The irony is that Nottingham could have had the most prolific and profitable tourist industry outside London.

Even the architect of Broad Marsh was eventually to proclaimed that "if he had known" he would never have done it.

What, you mean if it was flat like the Shambles and not a very steep hill? :unsure:

Taking a slightly broader definition of things.....

York on the left (from Robbie); and Sussex Street in Broad Marsh on the right.

A view up Steep Hill in Lincoln in December 1994. I suspect the lamp post was deliberately placed at that angle to make things look more picturesque. Sorry to see on a recent visit that Reader's Rest bookshop on the left has now closed down.

A lot steeper than Drury Hill. I'm usually knackered by the time I reach that bench.

Don't know why I liked the cemetery photo but, to me, it has a certain beauty about it
