    A gateway to hell, a place of worship or protective symbols? What are the so-called Witches’ Marks at Creswell Crags that have captured the imagination of millions?

    Creswell Crags never ceases to amaze us. Located on the border of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, this limestone gorge has a wealth of history dating back 60 thousand years.

    It wasn’t too long ago that we were telling you about the only-verified-in-the-UK Ice Age cave paintings, dating back to the prehistoric period. A time when migrating hunter-gatherers and animals moved according to the seasons in search of food and warmer weather. The good old days.

    A bright new look for Derby Road’s Focus Gallery

    Visit Nottinghamshire never passes up an opportunity to explore Derby Road, so when we heard that Focus Gallery had reopened following a major refurbishment over Christmas, we were determined to be the first through the doors to see the new look.
