Worksop is the largest town in the Bassetlaw district of Nottinghamshire on the River Ryton at the northern edge of Sherwood Forest. It is only 15 miles from Sheffield and is also twinned with the German town Garbsen. Believed to have been in existence since Anglo Saxon times, this unique market town in the north of Nottinghamshire is aptly dubbed the 'gateway to the Dukeries'. This influence is even reflected in the town centre. At Bridge Street and Bridge Place - the heart of Worksop's thriving retail community - coloured stone is set into the paving on the pedestrian streets, depicting the local heraldic crests. There is also a paved maze featuring a heraldic lion and unicorn, giving the town a sense of real historical character. The Augustian Priory of St Cuthbert and St Mary were founded in 1103 and the surviving part consists of the nave, western front and twin towers, built in the late 12th century. Here is a fascinating visual tour of the area, and how it has changed which will surprise and delight residents and visitors alike.
