Cobden Place is located in the old lace factory building at the end of the court yard of Cobden Chambers. In the 1800s Cobden Chambers was used as a photography studio for Nottingham's society of artists. In 1890 it was the registered office for Notts County Football Club. From the 1970s it was used as the editing house for platform a monthly arts magazine for the midlands. From the 1980s it was home to a Horologist. And finally, in it's current form it is a sympathetically restored building, with modern amenities and a love for it's heritage.
