Ashfield is a parliamentary constituency as well as a local government district in Nottinghamshire. Its administration centre is in Kirkby-in-Ashfield, although Sutton-in-Ashfield is the largest town in the district. Kirkby-in-Ashfield was founded by the Danes, as evidenced by its name which means ‘a village with a church situated in land where ash trees grow.’ In the Domesday Book of 1086 it was called Chirchebi and it is listed as having one priest and two mills. The village, or small town, was granted a charter in 1291 permitting a market and fair to be held there. There used to be a castle, Kirkby Castle, behind the church, but all that is left of it today is a grassy mound. The population of Kirby and other towns in the Ashfield area, grew in the 19th century when coal mining began in earnest.
