Slab square.

The beautiful weather enticed us into Nottingham yesterday and a trip on the ‘Nottingham Eye’!  Slab Square in the centre of Nottingham is a common meeting place for everyone.  Say ‘I’ll meet you by the lions’ and you know exactly where to go, but at the moment the Square is dominated by the Eye.  A temporary structure which contrasted sharply to the clear blue sky.

Standing with our tickets I couldn’t really believe I had suggested we should go all the way up there!  But as we waited we started to look  up above the shop fronts and the world of architecture appeared.  What beautiful buildings, made ordinary by the run of the mill shop windows.

And as we started to climb our focus shifted.

Look at the amazing turret and pinnacles.

From the top the view was breathtaking, a little on the hazy side, but well worth sitting still and not quaking!!  My photos do not do it justice.  My excuse is the sway of the car caused by the breeze!

Our descent brought the elegant, beautiful Hall into view with its fresco story.
