Darren Turner has put together this very comprehensive catalogue of all Fothergill’s known buildings to date.

Until this book, there has been no comprehensive study of Fothergill’s works and, since his death, a wide number of projects have been incorrectly attributed to him and, more worryingly, buildings that are by him but not widely recognised as such have continued to suffer neglect and even demolition. The latest building to be demolished was lost as recently as 2011.

This excellent Catalogue of Works provides a comprehensive schedule of all of his works and in doing so to bring together as much information as possible about each project to provide an invaluable resource.

Published in 2009 by the Nottingham Civic Society, Ken Brand’s book is a good introduction to Fothergill and his work.

The book is illustrated, and has a map to help locate some of Fothergill’s more important buildings.

Available from some book shops and online e.g. Amazon

The society fights for the Victorian and Edwardian buildings people value. Every day, it works to protect Victorian and Edwardian buildings from demolition and destruction.

The society’s Conservation Advisers, guided by experts on their Southern Buildings Committee and Northern Buildings Committee, help local planning authorities and churches to avoid needless harm to Victorian or Edwardian buildings. The reuse of our wonderful historic buildings, rather than wasteful demolition and rebuild, is key to a sustainable future. The Victorian Society’s input has saved landmark buildings ranging from St Pancras in London to the Albert Dock in Liverpool.

The society runs numerous events and visits, developed by the events committee, and it publishes books, journals and a membership magazine to entertain and educate about the subject of the Victorian and Edwardian built heritage.
