    Some great news for the Embankment pub at Trent Bridge - it's been listed as a historic building by the government.

    It was finished in 1905 by city architect A N Bromley as Nottingham-based Boots' flagship store outside the city centre and became a model for similar stores across the country.

    Hilary Silvester, from the city's civic society, said the store had its own social club.

    “Jesse Boot saw the importance of a social club for his workers, where they could engage in not just recreational but educational activities," she said.

    "And he saw to it that these were conducted in pleasant surroundings.”

    "We pride ourselves on delivering the highest standard of attractions and have some interesting investment plans and new rides for Fantasy Island in the near future.”
