The Nottinghamshire Village of Tuxford was at one time described as a town and previously known as Tuxford in the Clays. Tuckers Ford, and as far back as the Doomsday Book, Tuxfarne. 

Over the centuries these lands were owned by many lords of the manor, the most recent being the Duke of Newcastle.  

In 1218 a charter was granted by Henry 111 to John de Lexington, allowing the village an annual fair and a weekly market, which brought Tuxford a new status as an independent trading centre.

More information regarding our village and its history can be obtained from the Tuxford Heritage Society.  There is a leaflet with a map of our heritage in the Heritage Trail Leaflet.
