The Nottinghamshire Heritage Gateway is designed to provide a guide to the heritage resources of the county, and a history of Nottinghamshire featuring the latest research.

The information provided by the Gateway is arranged through a series of research pathways, organised into the following groups: places, people, themes and events. The pathways provide users with a brief overview of a subject area and a list of key resources for further research, arranged by type of source material.

The Gateway is being developed by The Thoroton Society of Nottinghamshire, and new pathways are added on a regular basis. Our thanks are due to the Millennium Festival Awards for All for a grant which has made development of the site possible.
