More information about Larwood Park...
Larwood Park is a new community built in the heart of Kirkby in Ashfield. The development has been named after the renowned cricketer and fast bowler Harold Larwood who played for Nottingham and England during the 1920’s and 30’s. The site offers a wide range of 3 and 4 bedroom homes and will benefit from a newly developed sporting facility on it’s doorstep offering cricket and rugby fur the local community. The homes are set within a lush green environment of woodland, pocket parks, pedestrian and cycle routes and playing fields, with almost 50 per cent of the site remaining green and the homes are within an easy walk of Ashfield School and local primary schools. Pedestrian and cycle routes connect the site well with public transport and with local centres.
Kirkby-in-Ashfield lies on the eastern edge of the Erewash Valley which separates Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. Kirkby as it is locally known, was originally a Danish settlement and is a collection of small villages including Old Kirkby, The Folly (East Kirkby), Nuncargate and Kirkby Woodhouse. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book and has two main churches: St Wilfrid’s, a Norman church, which was gutted by fire on 6 January 1907 but quickly re-built to its former glory; and St Thomas’s, built in the early 1910s in neo-gothic style.
Kirkby Cross Conservation Area is one of three Conservation Areas in Ashfield, designated because of it’s architectural and historical importance. Kirkby Cross itself is the remains of a fourteenth century village cross, and is a listed structure. The Conservation Area includes the outstanding St Wilfred’s Church, alongside a number of listed farm buildings built out of local stone.
Kirkby-in-Ashfield was once an important centre of coal mining and railways in west Nottinghamshire. The railways were closed during the Beeching era leaving the town without a fast link to central Nottingham and nearby Mansfield until the railway re-opened in the 1990s as part of the current ‘Robin Hood’ line.
The town centre has undergone a revival and is progressively changing from a traditional mining town to a commuter base for the greater Nottingham area. Although there are now some large national names appearing on the high street such as Morrisons and Aldi, it is predominantly known for its unique range of independent local owned shops and businesses, and the warm and friendly welcome offered by its retailers. With a compact, pedestrian friendly town centre, it is the perfect place to shop! Kirkby also has two large secondary schools, Ashfield School and Kirkby College.
