Murder walk was fascinating
I saw advertised a murder mystery walk in Arnold on October 30.
I went along not expecting many others to be interested but as it was a fine night and
it was free, I thought I'd give it a go.
When I arrived at the Robin Hood in Arnold, the starting point, I was surprised to find
that I had been joined by more than 100 other people.
The walk was
led by Bob Massey, a local historian who coped very well with the large numbers and provided a fascinating incite into Arnold's somewhat murky past.
A lady had a few of Bob's books, which were very soon sold out. I did not manage to
get one but was told they were stocked by MSR News so went straight round the next
day and bought some volumes. The stories on the walk and in the books were
to everyone involved for a great night.

Pub talk delves into past of one of Arnold’s
by Gedling Eye
Historian Bob Massey will host the talk at the Robin Hood and Little John pub later this month
People in Gedling borough are being given the opportunity to delve into the past of one of Arnold’s oldest pubs at a talk later this month.
Local historian and author Bob Massey is hosting the talk
about the history of the Robin Hood and Little John pub at the venue on February 13 from 7pm.
It’s the second talk the popular speaker has held at the pub on Church Street, with the first one proving to be a smash hit.
Massey said: “There was an estimated 120 people crammed into the bar for my last talk. Several people had to leave the pub as they could not get in.”
The Robin Hood & Little John in Arnold has a rich history, dating back
to the 1700’s making it one of the oldest pubs in the borough town.
In 1940 the pub was was purchased by Home Brewery, which traded from 1875 until 1996 in Daybrook. It’s now owned by the Lincoln Green Brewing Company.
