Green's Windmill Sneinton is probably the area's most famous landmark. The Mill was built shortly after 1807 by the father of 19th-century mathematical physicist George Green, whose name was also George Green. It is located on the site of a previous post mill and there were at least two other mills on Windmill Lane in Sneinton. The mill was still in use until the 1860s, after which it was abandoned and gradually fell into disrepair. It was derelict until acquired by Nottingham City Council in 1979. Funds were raised and it was renovated and reopened on 2nd December 1986 and is now part of a science centre open to the public.

This virtual memorial has been compiled from scrutiny of Nottingham Evening Post obituary entries, the CWGC Debt of Honour Register and other military sources, census data and Birth, Marriage and Death indexes. It commemorate fatalities from the Sneinton area of Nottingham whose names do not appear on the memorial in St Stephen's Church. Most of those listed here lived in four parishes. Neither St Matthias nor St Alban seem to have erected memorials during the Great War's aftermath. At St Christopher, some time after the First World War the glass in the east window was replaced as a memorial to the men of the parish who did not return from the war. Research to date has failed to locate a Roll of Honour or other details except that the memorial window, destroyed by the Luftwaffe in May 1941, is said to have included the regimental insignia of every serviceman killed. At St Philip, notes Doug Fletcher, ‘A brass plaque bearing the names of the men of the parish who died in World War I was fixed to the north wall of the Chancel. It had a double column of names. The apsidal chancel had five stained glass windows by a local maker, Gascoyne. These five widows formed (a second) War Memorial for the First World War.’ As well as 200 listed at St Stephen, it is probable that more than 450 additional Sneinton men were lost during the 1914-18 conflict.

  • The former St Matthias Church on St Matthias Road Sneinton Nottingham. St Matthias opened as a Chapel of Ease for St Stephen's in 1868 closing for Anglican worship in 2003. According to the Southwell & Nottingham Church History Project, 'As a result of enemy action in 1941 the church was badly damaged; the sacristy was destroyed, the apsidal wall was badly cracked, the organ was damaged and many windows broken. The church was saved by the Vicar (the Revd F L F Rees), a part-time air warden. Armed with a stirrup pump, he dashed to the scene and saw an incendiary bomb blazing away in the roof. He waited for the bomb to burn its way through and fall into the nave. He then doused the flames with the pump.' The building currently houses St Mary and St George's Coptic Catholic Church.

  • St Alban's Church Bond Street Sneinton Nottingham was built 1886-87 to seat 565 people to serve an ecclesiastical parish carved out of St Stephen's and St Matthias's. It was declared redundant by the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham in 2003 and sold. It is now used as a Parish of the Apostolic Exarchate for Ukrainians, dedicated to Our Lady of Perpetual Succour and St Alban.

  • St Christopher's Church Colwick Road Sneinton Nottingham was consecrated on 1st December 1910. The church was badly damaged in the air raid on Nottingham of 8th/9th May 1941. Only the walls were left standing. Until restoration was completed in 1952, the church joined with St.Philip's, Pennyfoot Street, and when St Philip's was demolished in 1964, its name was joined with that of St Christopher's.

  • St Philip's Church Pennyfoot Street Nottingham. According to Doug Fletcher ‘The parish of St Philip, Pennyfoot Street, was created in 1879 out of the parish of St Luke, Carlton Road. The parish was created to relieve pressure of numbers on St Luke’s, and St Philip’s opened the same year...  St Luke’s was closed in 1923, and the two parishes were united as St Philip’s with St Luke’s. Three subsequent waves of slum clearance and redevelopment reduced even the joint population to a fraction of its original size. In 1960, when the then incumbent died, the Bishop of Southwell announced that St Philip’s was to be closed. Protests were mounted but the final service took place in July 1963, and the church was demolished in 1964.’
