Worksop-Gateford, Place To Live In

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am looking at properties around Gateford Worksop and I would like to ask your advise. Is Worksop a nice place  to live in as a whole, and also what about the Gateford area?

 

Thanks !

I've been staying at a friends once a week for the past 12 months, they live on Clarence Road, behind the station. You wouldn't realize there was a station there except for the occasional (distant) sound of a horn from the trains. There's an Aldi at the bottom of the road, Wickes, B&Q, Toolstation, Screwfix all within walking distance and the bigger supermarkets not much further. A pleasant, flat town centre (10 mins away) and traffic free. All in all much more relaxed than Sheffield, and apart from the usual rush hours, much less congestion.

I live at Gateford (since 1998). The estate we live on is well designed with lots of open spaces. The cost of the house was substantially less than it would cost in Sheffield. There are more houses being built although I doubt the present developers will give over as much land for open spaces.

 

The road link to Sheffield has been vastly improved around the Todwick area although Anston can become a bottleneck.

 

Shops are handy. Romans Rest pub is OK although I've not been in for months.
