As a follow-up to my earlier post on the work of Watson Fothergill, Nottingham architect, here are some more of his beautiful buildings. The first is the Rose of England pub, built in 1899. I’ve often admired the Gothic look of it and it’s immediately recognisable as Fothergill’s work.
This next building is St Andrew’s House, directly opposite St Andrew’s Church. Fothergill rebuilt part of it for a Dr Smart, whose monogram can be seen below.
This appears to be one of Fothergill’s private houses, dating from around 1873 and therefore one of his earliest designs. The styling of the date is a familiar indicator.
The building below is Castle Court, somewhat marred in this photo by a giant to let sign. You can see the typical Fothergill towers though, as well as the tell tale date and signature. It’s a Grade II listed building, built in 1894 for the paper merchants Simons & Pickard.
The back of the building, seen from the side of the canal, is just as impressive.
This building below, which I wasn’t able to get too close to due to a locked gate is now the Ukranian Cultural Centre at Clawson Lodge. It’s a Grade II listed building from 1885 and was originally designed for Mr Doubleday, a lace manufacturer. I’m hoping to arrange a return visit so that I can take better photos soon.
