I've just got back from a little trip of trying to take pictures.
I went to the top of the crop field for a sunset sort of shot of Nottingham. I ran up the hill, got to the top and my camera battery had died.

Anyone have any images of this building??

FORGOTTEN JEWEL MAY SHINE AGAIN
Be the first reader to comment on this story

11:00 - 08 August 2007



County House, the Georgian jewel in High Pavement, Nottingham, looks unloved and neglected.

It was once the prestigious lodgings used by judges out on circuit, covering the courts in Nottingham.

Complaints about the noise led to new lodgings being found in The Park.



Later the building, listed grade II, became the County Records Office where valuable documents were kept of Nottinghamshire's proud history - charters, council records and other items valuable to researchers.

But the building now lies empty after the records office moved in 1993 to Wilford Street.

County House and the Shire Hall opposite were sold by Notts County Council some years ago.

Today County House is owned by Nottingham businessman and property owner Kevin Mason through one of his companies.

Mr Mason said he was not in a position to discuss his plans.

"There is some activity at the moment but it would not be appropriate to discuss it," he said.

Matthew Cullen of agents Lambert Smith Hampton has been instructed by Mr Mason to find interest.

He said there had been a low-key marketing exercise and a future use had yet to be decided.

Mr Cullen said: "We went to best bids. We are making sure we run with the right party. We will probably know where we are going within the next two weeks."

Mr Cullen said he did not believe there was a residential use for the property.

"It is a stunning building and I think you are looking at a leisure or office use."

Any plans could include a car park site next door.

One person who might be interested in County House is James Blick, whose company owns the Lace Market Hotel and **** & Hoop pub next door. "We have expressed interest in the past," said Mr Blick. "I would still be interested."

Or this??

One of Nottingham's important Art Deco buildings - the YMCA designed by Cecil Howitt - is to be given a facelift.

The listed building in Shakespeare Street is being refurbished under a scheme designed by Nottingham firm Rayner Davies Architects.

Work started this week on the £600,000 revamp of the listed building and will take several months.

Two shops are being created on the ground floor plus offices and meeting rooms upstairs.

The scheme will also include a new reception area, says Chris Goodwin of Rayner Davies who has designed the scheme.

He said: "The building is a jewel in Nottingham's heritage and was subject to some sensitive planning and listed building permissions.

"As well as the major works inside, the building will keep its windows but the glass will be replaced, as the old ones are seen as unsafe.

"This is a really important building in Nottingham because there are not many left of this period. It is a good quality building of the period."

The YMCA has some unusual original cladding outside which will be repaired and protected.

Chris added: "It is black vitralite which is no longer made. It is extremely rare in listed building terms and will be preserved and, where necessary, repaired."

About 60 staff are employed at the YMCA.

The building also houses the association's health and fitness club and a 78-bed hostel.

Dean Titterton, assistant chief executive of the YMCA, said: "This is an exciting time for us here at the YMCA."

Apologies for the small size of the picture...



Its located accross the road from the Trinity Square development, opposite the Central Police Station. It should look good when its done, and attract some good retail interest, since its almost next door to the large apartment scheme going up. Does anyone know how many floors they settled on for that site in the end? They seem to be on at least floor 5/6 already!

Looks like a beautiful old building. Renovating something like this is often as good for the area as new developments. This is the kind of building that would have been knocked down in the 70's & 80's!!

I did wonder when they were going to start work on HSBC...does it have full permission then? To be honest, I dont think the loss of the other branch is really that bad, though the one on the square is useful. They are both just too small. I think they should wait and see how busy the new one is before making a decision on the old ones though.

USC was looking good,they have really gone to town on that building, im glad they got rid of those moss green tiles that went around the centre of the building. All we need is new shops for the old river island store and the old silverscreen dvd store, and Clumber Street will be looking pretty good again.
