Abbeys and Religious Buildings in Nottinghamshire

We are attempting to list all places where photographers can photograph Abbeys and Religious buildings within the UK, by county. This is the start of a list that will both grow over time and hopefully we will be able to add more columns or information. This same information is also available in alphabetical order.

Where the names in the first column is hyperlinked this links to a Location page with more information on this site and over time more of these will be added, we will be delighted if some of you would like to also produce location pages.
