firbeck 859 Posted February 27, 2010 Report Share Posted February 27, 2010 As its always a pleasant change to see a TV programme about Nottingham down here that isn't about crime, we took time out to watch it. Basically, it was about a couple who couldn't decide whether to buy a house in Nottingham or Barcelona, hmmmm. It started off badly, as my missus said, she didn't know there was a cable car in the city, nor did I. The first house was on Carlton Hill, near the 'Train station'? It was described as a contemporary property, I didn't realise that 1930's semi's came into that category. Next house was in Sherwood, described as being right next door to Sherwood Forest, cut to scenes of kids cycling about in the pines at presumably Centre Parks, I dind't realise that the Forest now extended down Valley Road. Now lets look at a property to the south of the city, West Bridgeford? no, Beeston, has it been moved then. It looked as if the programme had been made last spring, but I must admit, we were surprised at the price of property up there compared to down here, I always thought that the north south divide had largely levelled out, but I reckon you could add on £100K to the price of those type of properties down here, and Braintree is supposed to be fairly cheap. Mind you, it couldn't compare to the price of the grotty little flats they were looking at in Barcelona, I think I would have stuck to Beeston, even if it has been moved.
