Such a lovely place very close to the city centre. Don't confuse it for the nearby structure the 'Picture and Piano' that is a pub restaurant. The church is a real original and well worth a short trip from town.

This is quite a large church, with probably the root screen the most important item, as legend has it that near the root screen Robyn Hood was arrested. On the side is presumably the oldest door in Nottingham, framed by the picture of King Richard...More

The interior was closed when I went along, which was disappointing, but the outside is a great example of late Medieval/early Tudor architecture. I'll review this again if I ever get inside.

Fantastic old church, so full of character. Went to an event and the volunteers could not have been more helpful.
