A total of £29.4 million is being invested to redevelop the Nottingham Castle site. Now closed for work to and due to re-open in 2020.

The closure has provided Nottingham Fire & Rescue with the perfect location for some confined space rescue training.

This was a great opportunity for me to photograph them practising their skills. It was fantastic to see just how much goes in to protecting both them and the people being rescued.

The photographs below are some from their morning at the Castle.
