As well as keeping this blog I enjoy reading other blogs about Nottingham. http://nottinghamviews.wordpress.com/ posts about buildings and architecture in Nottingham. As well as some beautiful buildings it also features the occasional building which has been unjustly neglected.
One of these is at 41 Pilcher Gate a “Georgian house (that) stands on the corner of Pilcher Gate and St Mary’s Walk and was built around 1705 as a town house for the Sherwin family. It’s believed to be the one of the oldest residences in the City of Nottingham… (and) has been derelict for up to 20 years.
Featuring a fine sweeping staircase, it is one of the last remaining run-down buildings in the Lace Market and is believed to be the oldest town house in Nottingham.”
However thankfully “Nottingham City Council has now approved a £2m renovation to convert the listed building into six apartments and two offices surrounding a courtyard.”
