Worksop is an ancient town to be found in the north west of Nottinghamshire and described in the Doomsday book as Wirchesop (although there are numerous other spelling and meanings) which name supposedly meant “a fortified hill”.The ancient earthworks known as Castle Hill evident at the time of the Norman Invasion seem to support this. This site is still marked but it is unclear whether a stone built castle ever existed although there is some evidence of a wooden structure having been there.
Around 1103 an Augustinian Priory was established by William de Lovetot and although most of the original was demolished at the time of the Dissolution, part still remained and has been incorporated in the existing Priory Church (of St Cuthbert and Mary). The church has been fully restored and is now well maintained for future generations. There is a great deal of fascinating history around this church which is one of Worksop’s best known landmarks along with the Priory Gatehouse which was built at the beginning of the 14th century by the Augustinian Order from the Priory. Evidently 200 oaks were felled in Sherwood Forest to be used in the building of the Gateway.
A market cross had existed in the vicinity from around 1160 for Cheapside or Radford which at that time was a separate parish but it has since merged with Worksop. The cross was resited in 1896 and now stands where the original road once passed through the archway.
The Gateway has had many uses over the centuries and originally provided shelter and hospitality for visitors but after 1539 this came to an end and the church lands were handed to the Talbot family, Earls of Shrewsbury who owned Worksop Manor at that time. The Gatehouse subsequently changed hands several times but had been used as an elementary school in 1628 and then as “a school for poor boys” in 1853 supported by voluntary subscription. Later as an annexe for the Abbey School, parish room, offices, tea room and art gallery. As recently as five years ago it was used as a temporary night shelter for homeless people. It is presently unused and is hopefully to be restored and made useful once again.
Worksop is now known as “The Gateway to the Dukeries” and indeed is surrounded by stately homes and lands at one time belonging to such dukes and earls as Newcastle, Shrewsbury, Portland, Devonshire, Rutland and Norfolk to name just a few. Many of these grand houses no longer exist but Worksop is still close to many of the parks which were originally part of Sherwood Forest (Robin Hood country) such as Clumber, Rufford, Welbeck, and Thoresby all open to the public apart from Welbeck Abbey which is still in private hands.
Worksop was originally a small market town known mainly for agricultural and related services. In the late 18th century it was famously known for being one of the biggest producers of liquorice along with hat making (16 hat makers still in Beaver Place in 1841), and also for the manufacture of Windsor chairs. With the creation of the Chesterfield Canal in 1777 and the railway in 1849 it became a bustling town with many local tradesmen, maltings, breweries, milling industries, timber yards, glass manufacturing, engineering works and refractories which all benefited from the increased accessibility for moving goods. A colliery was opened in Worksop in 1898 which provided many jobs and new housing at Manton, and caused workers from outside the town to settle in Worksop. Unfortunately many of these industries are no longer around.
It is well served by rail, canal and roads (close to the original Great North Road) and is within easy reach of both the A1 and the M1 with access to all the large town and cities in the neighbouring counties.
Lack of space precludes further information but there are many websites and publications giving detailed history of Worksop particularly covering the times from the 16th century onwards with regards to the various titled families and their many marriages linking the properties which comprised the Dukeries. Many drawings and photographs can also be found on Nottinghamshire Heritage sites.
