Nottingham’s Cockle Man

On many a Sunday as a kid playing chase the ace in the club with my grandad, on my first LEGAL pint round town and as recent as a night out with the good wife in the square The Cockle Man has served me up a treat of cockles with a dash of vinegar as I’ve enjoyed a few pale ales in Nottingham. He’s heard all the jokes “have you got crabs mate” but has still walked his way round Nottinghams pubs and bars with his basket of fresh seafood, white over coat and hat.

A local Nottingham media group followed him with camera as he went about his business and realised a short film to mark his service and give a insight into one of the most recognisable figures in Nottingham.
