In Nottinghamshire Past leading historians of Nottinghamshire have tackled issues in the county's past ranging from the origins of Wollaton Park, through the role of the church courts, the building of Nottingham castle, the formation of the diocese of Southwell, and the reconstruction of Nottingham during the nineteenth century.

Each essay opens up and develops an area which has been only partially known or understood in the past, and the subjects range in time across the past thousand years, and in geography from the Dukeries estates to Stanton on the Wolds.

We meet the man who gave his name to the Major Oak, and we find out how relatively easy it was for the monarch to move around the county almost undetected a century ago.

All the essays have been written to celebrate the thirty-two years Adrian Henstock spent as county archivist of Nottinghamshire.
