Nottingham began in the 6th century as a small Saxon settlement. It was inevitable that sooner or later Nottingham would grow into a town as it is the first point where the Trent can be forded but the river is also navigable this far inland. In 1067 William the Conqueror built a wooden castle to guard Nottingham. (It was rebuilt in stone in the 12th century). In the Middle Ages the main industry in Nottingham was wool manufacture.
