The Reform Riots in Nottingham occured between the 8th and 11th October 1831 and resulted in Nottingham Castle being burnt down.
The Parliamentary Reform Bill failed in the House of Lords on the 8th October 1831. When the news of its failure reached Nottingham it sparked off the riots which resulted in the burning of the Castle and Lowes Silk Mill at Beeston and would end with the execution of three men and numerous men being transported to Van Diemens Land.
