From reading the book you get the impression that the author does not know Nottingham very well. This book has been written by sitting in the main central library archives and making notes. An example of this is that he says Arnold is to the south of the city, it is to the north east as every local will tell you!
I'm sure that if he spent time buying a few pints he would have gleaned far more information and better stories. One is of the ghost train that still travels through the now closed off tunnel between the Victoria Centre and Carrington Station. It is alleged to stop at what remains of platforms under the Victoria Centre.
Nottingham is a very old city with an history going back centuries. It has seen an awful lot of bloodshed over the generations and has many spirits still re-living their final moments.

Living in nottingham since I was 4 years old (48 years old now ) I have always grown up with learning the history of nottingham especially Robin Hood and nottingham castle , and as well as having the oldest public house ( The Trip To Jerusalem ) in the country which is haunted and so nottingham is not only steeped in history but full of spooks, ghouls and terrifying things ( not only my wife lol ) that go bump in the night
