Worksop is located 19 miles (31 km) east-south-east of Sheffield, with a population of 41,820. It lies close to Nottinghamshire's borders with South Yorkshire, and Derbyshire.
Worksop is known as the "Gateway to The Dukeries", because of the now four obsolete ducal principal sites of which were closely located next to each other, south of the town. These four ducal locations were; Clumber House, Thoresby Hall, Welbeck Abbey and Worksop Manor. Other houses such as Rufford Abbey and Hodsock Priory are also just a few miles away.

Police Neighbourhood Alert System
The Police wish to share this with as many residents as possible:
Rural communities are being encouraged to form a united front against crime – by signing up to a new local email alert system.
In response to local feedback, Nottinghamshire Police is adopting a bespoke rural Neighbourhood Alert email platform, which sends regular warnings about the latest offences and emerging criminal trends.
We are encouraging residents, farmers and other business owners to learn more about what is happening in their area by signing up for updates.
The software, already used by thousands of people in the county, provides hyper-local, street-level updates to residents about what is happening in their area.
I am asking as many people as possible to sign up as we will be using the system as our main method of sending updates.
Can I also urge residents to continue to immediately report all offences and suspicious activity by phone or on-line in order to build up a clearer local picture about current activities and trends.
For example, if you are a farmer who uses a quadbike for work and a similar devices has been stolen from another farm nearby, we'll issue a bespoke warning to you so you can safeguard your investment.
All you need to do is sign up to Neighbourhood Alerts using the link below and ensure you have selected "rural matters" in the dropdown menu for specific trend updates.
"If you are already registered, you can also select specific trend updates you want to see by clicking on the 'messages' option and selecting 'which type of messages'."
