The market town of Kirkby in Ashfield is located in Nottinghamshire, England, and lies on the eastern rim of the Erewash Valley, close to the Derbyshire county border.
The town is an ancient settlement but grew more rapidly when coal mining and the railroads arrived in this western part of Nottinghamshire. The town boasted at one point three active coal mines and several railway lines passed through Kirby in Ashfield during the 19th century, when the fortunes of the town peaked economically.
As everywhere else where coal mining came to an end in the late 1980s, Kirkby in Ashfield suffered greatly from unemployment, under-funding and under-development for many years after the mines had closed and the railway stations had shut their doors. Although one of the railway lines reopened as part of the “Robin Hood” line, Kirkby in Ashfield has yet to recover and establish itself as a commuter town.
There are two historic churches, two secondary schools, shops and various other amenities as well as boasting a lovely conservation area around the area of Church Street and St Wilfrid’s Church, Chapel Street and Sutton Road.
The town can be easily accessed by car via the A38 road and the M1 motorway, which lies within a 3 mile distance of the town. A frequent bus service connects Kirkby in Ashfield with Mansfield and Nottingham. If you suffered a road traffic accident while commuting from Kirkby to Mansfield and that accident was due to somebody’s negligence, you could make an injury claim in Kirkby in Ashfield with an accident solicitor.
