Towns of Two Halves extracts:
“The association of Nottingham with justice, through the ambiguous figure of the Sheriff of Nottingham, goes back centuries. It is an appropriate place, then, for the National Justice Museum.”
“From the pub to the castle is barely a fighting cock-stride, and the footpath takes you past a famous statue of Robin Hood. Eventually, when a new generation of sprinters has taken the baton, the pose will once again look like England’s favourite proto-socialist rather than Usain Bolt.”
“Edward III is said to have entered the castle surreptitiously through secret tunnels to take his mother and her lover by surprise. Their surprise may be easily imagined.”
