Bluesday Tuesday - 4


Very close to the castle is this sort of monument to a couple of overseers. I'm not sure who they were or why they should be remembered. I do know that an overseer is a person that is in charge of a group of workers, usually in the clothing industry and as Nottingham was famous for lace, I would deduce that Sam Parr and his friends were some sort of managers of a lace company. But whatever happened to them in 1869, remains to be discovered.
