Local information

  • Gateford is a small period hamlet to the north of the centre of Worksop and being extremely well located with excellent access to a wide range of regional and national centres with excellent transport links nearby. Considerable history surrounds the area in which The Entrance Lodge was built. The site having thought to have originally belonged to the Benedictine Priory of Wallingwells and in Harrison's Survey of Worksop 1636 it is believed that the cottage may also have been mentioned within that report.
