Welcome to Worksop

From country walks to cultural attractions and family days out, there’s lots to see and do close to the town of Worksop. Located on the edge of Sherwood Forest just a short drive from Sheffield, new homes in Worksop are ideal if you’re looking for good transport links, plenty of employment opportunities and a vibrant local community.

A quick history

Worksop was mentioned as a settlement in the Domesday Book in the 11th century. A castle was built in the town after the Norman invasion, and eventually a market was established. Following the opening of the Chesterfield Canal in the 18th century, the agricultural industry in and around Worksop grew, boosted again by the opening of the Great Central Railway in 1849.

Over the centuries, Worksop has become a popular commuter town, with great transport links to Sheffield, Lincoln and Nottingham.
