The Nottingham Industrial Museum is based in part of the 17th century stable block at Wollaton Hall and as it’s only open on weekends and Bank Holidays it took quite a while before I got around to visiting. It focuses on a wide range of Nottingham industries including lace, bicycles and mining.
Some of the most interesting objects were the knitting machines, as many people in my family tree were framework knitters in Nottingham.
The museum is broken into different industrial areas, so the transport gallery features a rare Phaeton coach as well as bikes and cars.
One particular highlight of our visit was a temporary exhibit focusing on the Black Boy Hotel, a now demolished building that had been designed by Watson Forthergill.
