More amazing Nottingham architecture

I met with friends for the most conjenial Sunday lunch recently, in one of my favourite areas of the city, opposite Nottingham Castle. (The Castle is just about to get a multi million pound makeover – how lucky are we?)

I walked past these amazing buildings on the historic Standard Hill on the way back to the car. The road is so called to commemorate the raising of the standard by King Charles 1 in 1642, the start of the English Civil War.

The round tower was a circular Victorian hospital ward which opened in 1900 as part of Nottingham General Hospital’s Jubilee Wing.

These buildings literally take my breath away –¬† my fingers are itching to depict them in some way, so inspiring.
