I visited the Trent to Trenches Exhibition at Nottingham Castle in November, just before it was to come to a close. I’d already heard many good things about it, and thankfully this was borne out on my visit. In the centenary year of the start of the First World War, the exhibition focuses on the people of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire at home and in the trenches during that time.
On my same visit to London when I saw The Tempest I decided to pay a visit to the Museum of London (post to follow). But whilst researching it and the area I discovered that Postman’s Park was close by and, intrigued, I thought I’d keep an eye out and see if I had time that day to pay the park a visit as well. As luck would have it though I happened to be walking to the Museum on the right side of the road to pass by the entrance to the Park and not wanting to miss the opportunity to have a look while the weather was behaving itself, I headed in.
