Watson Fothergill is one of my favourite Nottingham architects and I’ve written about him several times before. He had to move his architectural offices to George Street in Nottingham due to the building of the then Nottingham Victoria railway station (now Victoria Centre shopping centre) and this Grade II listed building was built in 1895. In 2015 part of the frontage was damaged by a truck and finally in the last month or so it has been repaired, so I went along to take photos. It says something about how well loved the building is that while I was there several people came up to me to express how pleased they were with the quality of the repair work.

I’ve been to the Rock Cemetery, next to the Forest Recreation Ground, a number of times to take photographs (as you’ll see it contains some lovely monuments) but the main reason for my visit on this occasion was to make a pilgrimage of sorts to the grave of Watson Fothergill, the Nottingham architect I’ve written about a number of times.
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.
Watson Fothergill was an English architect who designed over 100 buildings in Nottingham. Many of the city’s most striking buildings and some of my personal favourites were designed by him, so I decided to dedicate this blog post to some of his achievements.
