Worksop Road

The early settling family of Charles and Mary Dixon came from the Nottinghamshire village of Worksop, a name which lived on in the title of their farm, and eventually in Worksop Road, which bisected their land.

Worksop is situated on the River Ryton, and dates back to at least the 14th century. The town is near Sheffield, and is the entrance to The Dukeries, a large estate in the north of Robin Hood country, the Sherwood Forest.
