17 Castle Gate   Situated on one of Nottingham’s most refined streets, 17 Castle Gate is a well- proportioned Georgian townhouse owned by Weavers of Nottingham, the independent wine merchants. In the 20th century 17 Castle Gate was used by Nottingham’s lace industry but following the decline in textile manufacturing the whole building was bought by Weavers in 1989. A programme of careful restoration has returned 17 Castle Gate to its former glory, and even revealed 18th-century sketches hidden beneath layers of wallpaper. The caves beneath 17 Castle Gate are small but elegant. Until recently Weavers actively used the caves as wine cellars but they are no longer used in this way.
