Nottinghamshire Heritage Gateway

Nottinghamshire Heritage Gateway

 

Two weeks ago Maria and I had a meeting with Dr Denise Amos discussing a John Player pathway on the Nottinghamshire Heritage Gateway website, linked to the Thoroton Society.  This is a very useful website for anyone wanting to do research about any part of Nottinghamshire’s history and as Player’s had such a strong impact on the city, it is relevant for there to be information about it on the website. 

I am currently drafting the overview of the pathway, which will be approximately 1500-2000 words detailing the history of Player’s from the beginning to the present.   I will also be searching for images of Player’s buildings and factories for the structural section.  In the graphic section will be images of counter cards, advertising posters and photographs of events etc.  I will also be supplying information about primary and secondary sources about the history of Player’s for anyone who wishes to read more about the company.  The details of the film and oral history work done with the participants for the player’s past and tailor-made sessions will also be on the website.
