This busy centre is famous for the manufacture of hosiery and lace. It is now a suburb of the City of Nottingham and has both the county’s fire brigade and police constabulary within its boundaries.

In the 12th century it was part of the great Sherwood Forest, small parts of which still survive. The birthplace of painter Richard Parkes Bonington, it has a fine parish church that dates back to the late 13th century. The remains of a Roman settlement can be found at Cockpit Hill.
