School set to share the secrets of Sherwood Hall

A primary school in our area are hoping to uncover information about the original Sherwood Hall, by inviting residents to share their memories next week.

Abbey Primary will open their doors at 2pm on Tuesday 22nd  November for people to talk about their experiences of the mansion, which was demolished in 1967.

Danielle McIntyre, who is leading the project, said “All we really know about the hall is that is was our site from around 1700 to the 1960s, before Sherwood Hall School was built. We're hoping someone will be able to tell us who lived here, what life was like for them, and what the gardens were like”.

The school have already received help from Nottinghamshire Archives as they look to find out more about the hall, and they're hoping to discover enough to create their own exhibition on the site's history, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
