Kirkby Outdoor Market

The Government made an announcement recently that people must stay at home except for a limited number of purposes.  All shops selling non-essential goods were instructed to close. The Government are keeping the restrictions under constant review and they will look at them again in the following weeks and will only relax them if the evidence shows they are able to. 

In view of the Government’s instructions the Council have taken the decision to suspend all of the outdoor markets in Ashfield whilst these restrictions are in place, effective from; 24th March 2020. 

This was not an easy decision for the Council as we are aware of the contribution that markets make to local communities but it is difficult to see how the Council can ensure that people can abide by the Government’s instructions within a market environment. 

We thank you for your support of the markets and hope to welcome back our valued customers and market traders as soon as it is safe to do so.

Larwood Statues


Larwood statues

Harold Larwood (14 November 1904 – 22 July 1995) was a professional cricketer for Nottinghamshire and England between 1924 and 1938. A right-arm fast bowler who combined unusual speed with great accuracy, he was considered by many commentators to be the finest bowler of his generation. He was the main exponent of the bowling style known as "bodyline," the use of which during the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) tour of Australia in 1932–33 caused a furore that brought about a premature and acrimonious end to his international career.

Harold Larwood was born on 14 November 1904 in the Nottinghamshire village of Nuncargate, near the coal mining town of Kirkby-in-Ashfield. He was the fourth of five sons born to Robert Larwood, a miner, and his wife Mary.
