NCT stages heritage day

Nottingham City Transport (NCT) is staging a Heritage Day on Monday 4 July from 1000-1600hrs in Nottingham’s Old Market Square. The day is to mark the 90th anniversary of South Notts, and 50 years since the last trolleybus operated in Nottingham.

The trolleybus era in Nottingham is being marked. As it was – the 36 turning circle on the Valley Road roundabout; the art deco building is the Futurist cinema. Photo: Rob Hancock
