I like Nottingham, too. It will attenuate more than the Windsor, leaving you with a drier beer, perhaps, and it has a cleaner, less estery yeast flavor profile. So generally, its a little less British in character than Windsor.
If you wanted to go with liquid yeast, you could try one of the English strains, like WLP002 (English) or WLP005 (British). I like WLP005 a lot when making a bitter but haven't used it for this beer.
