Nottingham’s innovations

An entertaining article from the Nottingham Post – What’s the best thing Nottingham has given the world?
They cite – Ibuprofen, MRI, HP Sauce, Raleigh bikes, VCR, Traffic lights, Tarmac, Torvill and Dean, Paul Smith, Goose Fair, although in a different order that gives more emphasis to personality.
Spectacularly, the article missed stocking frames which transformed the nature and wealth of Nottingham.

The stocking frame museum in Ruddington has just been awarded a Heritage Lottery fund award of £71,000.
It’s manufacturing and product that matters.
