The Midland Railway: Mansfield to Worksop Line - Worksop Library

Worksop Library, Worksop

Fully booked

Venue Worksop Library

This talk celebrates the Midland Railway between Mansfield and Worksop by looking at the fight to make that connection and showing how it boosted the local economy by enabling the sinking of many coal mines, which created over 17,000 jobs by the 1930s. With this came the rapid expansion of local towns and villages, including the entirely new village of Rhodesia. 

The railway provided the much-needed link to the wider network, enabling local people to enjoy a day’s excursion, visit family,  or see that all-important football match.

Join Project Officer, Denis Hill, to learn more about the railway and its history to date, as part of the Robin Hood Line.
