The church is dedicated to St. Lawrence; the living is a rectory, in the patronage of the Duke, and in the incumbency of the Rev. George Mason, of Cuckney, Nottinghamshire; the Rev. J. Harnage is the present curate."
[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]
The parish is 4 miles west of Worksop and covers 4,880 acres. The parish had passenger rail service from 1875 until 1964. The station was re-built and re-opened in 1998. Nigel THOMPSON provides a photograph of Whitwell railway station on Geo-graph, taken in May, 2010.
Neil THEASBY has a photograph of the Village Sign on Geo-graph, taken in June, 2012. It appears substantial enough to stop a small tank, but it could use your talent for design and artistic skills to create a more enticing sign.
