The Visited Folk @ Brewhouse yard under castle ROck- 28-31/10

In 1349 the Black Death visitation killed an estimated 1000 people in Nottingham. As more and more people died of disease, bodies were hurriedly buried and fear undoubtedly spread. To prevent the spread of the disease, caves cut into the rock beneath the Castle were used to isolate those who became known as the Visited Folk. Join archaeologist Scott Lomax and explore the caves they once inhabited. £6 entry, includes museum entry at Brewhouse Yard  underneath Nottingham Castle Rock, for more info click
