The Anglo-Saxon settlement was originally confined to the area today known as the Lace Market and was surrounded by a substantial defensive ditch and rampart, which fell out of use following the Norman Conquest and was filled by the time of the Domesday Survey A settlement also developed around the castle on the hill opposite and was the French borough supporting the Normans in the castle.
Eventually, the space between was built on as the town grew and the Old Market Square became the focus of Nottingham several centuries later. The ditch was later widened, in the mid th century, and a stone wall built around much of the perimeter of the town. A short length of the wall survives, and is visible at the northern end of Maid Marian Way, and is protected as a Scheduled Monument. It was besieged by Richard and, after a sharp conflict, was captured.
