Nottinghamshire 

"The soil of Nottinghamshire is various, and it assumes, in consequence, a great diversity of appearance." states Pigot's Directory of 1828. "On the Derbyshire border, a stripe of land, extending as far south as opposite Nottingham, is the lime and coal district, and contains several woods, the land being mostly arable.  A broader tract, reaching to the north east extremity of the county, is composed chiefly of sand and gravel, including the whole of the ancient royal Forest of Sherwood, traditionally reported as the scene of the exploits of the noted outlaw Robin Hood and his associates...

The productions of this county are coals, lead wool, cattle, fowls, abundance of fresh water fish, liquorice, grain of all sorts, hops and weld.  The principal manufactures are hosiery, glass and earthenware, considerable breweries, malting concerns, and tanneries are also spread throughout the county, but the branch of manufactures which has lifted Nottinghamshire to so high a point of consequence, and which is centred in the town of Nottingham and immediate neighbourhood is the bobbin-net and net lace, which beautiful article may now be said to rival the most costly pillow laces of this country and France..."
