Victoria County History
The Victoria County History website contains authoritative texts on Plumtree (as well as Normanton-on-the Wolds and Clipston) written by local historian Sheila Leeds. Although these are currently works in progress, they can be accessed by selecting Counties from the site’s home page and then clicking on Nottinghamshire.
The Nottinghamshire Heritage Gateway (Plumtree)
The information provided by the Gateway is arranged through a series of research pathways, organised into the following groups: places, people, themes and events. The pathways provide users with a brief overview of a subject area and a list of key resources for further research, arranged by type of source material.
The Gateway is being developed by The Thoroton Society of Nottinghamshire, and new pathways are added on a regular basis.
The Domesday Project
