Power Tower


You may think that I took this photo somewhere in the countryside, as the church tower looks like it belongs in an English village. But you'd be wrong. This is St Nicholas' Church and is in the middle of Nottingham. Just a short walk from the Broad Marsh Centre. It was built in 1678, after the original one was destroyed during the English Civil War. It's only a small church, and I've never been inside, so I don't know if there are anything of interest like statues or unusual gravestones. There are a number of gravestones surrounding the church. Many though were lost when they built Maid Marian Way in the late 1960s.
