The latest volume in the Thoroton Society Record Series, Church Life in Georgian Nottinghamshire: Archbishop Drummond’s Parish Visitation Returns 1764, edited by Howard Fisher has just been published. The volume provides "transcripts of the individual Parish Returns for nearly the whole of the Archdeaconry of Nottingham - broadly coincident with the county of Nottinghamshire – during the visitation by Archbishop Drummond of York [in 1764] ... They shed invaluable light on the state of the Church of England in an East Midlands county in the Georgian period." Further details are here.

It is intended to publish the DVD edition of the coloured estate maps of William Senior, 1600-1640, as three 'volumes', the first of which will be an introduction and reproductions of the Welbeck atlas; this contains some 70 maps of the Earl of Newcastle's estates, mainly Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Northumberland. A DVD of the Chatsworth atlas will follow later and the final volume will be a reconstruction of the lost survey information from the Welbeck atlas presented as a conventional publication.
Further progress has been made with editing the estate accounts of the 2nd Duke of Newcastle relating to Welbeck Abbey and Nottingham Castle, etc. during the 1670s and 80s, and the projected history and gazetteer of Lost Churches and Chapels within the county.
