Hucknall is just 7 miles north of Nottingham, so it has the benefit of all the city’s amenities in addition to its own. It’s surrounded by farms and fields, making it feel a far cry from its coalmining and textiles heritage. It’s close to the essential north-south route of the M1, for excellent communication links throughout the Midlands, and all the way between London and Leeds. The winning combination of city, countryside, and communication, has made Hucknall a popular choice with families and professionals, setting the scene for a new home here.

Communication networks

The M1 keeps the whole of this area going and Hucknall is close to Junctions 26 and 27, for easy access to the county’s main towns. To the east, the A60 is the Nottingham-Mansfield route, with the A614 branching off it and creating the link with the A1 outside Worksop. Hucknall has a train station and a tram stop, with park & ride facilities for both to make life easier for commuters into Nottingham. Other connections include Workshop and Mansfield. Trentbarton bus services connect the different areas of Hucknall with the town centre, and with the train station and tram stop.

In town

The town has a pedestrianised high street which makes it a family-friendly place to shop. The Friday and Saturday general markets are held there, at the heart of the town. For supermarket shopping there’s a Tesco Extra, a Sainsbury’s, Aldi, Co-op, and Morrisons. For leisure, Hucknall’s Titchfield Park, is an award-winning Green Flag Park just 10-minutes’ walk from the town centre. The Leisure Centre has a gym, two swimming pools, sports courts and plenty of activities and classes for children. For education, the primary schools feed into The Holgate Academy, and The National Church of England Academy, and from there, students have the option to go to the Hucknall Sixth Form Centre.

Around and about

Hucknall is as far from the west coast as it is from the east but being land-locked is compensated for by the Holme Pierreport Country Park just south of Nottingham. This is the National Water Sports Centre. It’s a training ground for top athletes but the park is open to the public too, with plenty of family fun activities to get involved in. Newstead Abbey just up the road, has 300 acres of parkland that includes lakes, ponds, and waterfalls. Last but certainly not least, the River Trent, flowing under the historic Trent Bridge in nearby Nottingham and across the county, is the third longest river in the UK.
