About Mansfield

Mansfield is a market town in Nottinghamshire, England, the main town in the District of Mansfield and Mansfield Urban Area. It lies in the Maun Valley surrounded by hills, 12 mi north of Nottingham in a largely urban district, most of whose 106,556 population live in the town (including Mansfield Woodhouse), with Market Warsop a secondary centre. It lies next to the urban area of Sutton-in-Ashfield. Mansfield is the only major sub-regional centre in the county, covering an area of 30 square miles (78 sq km) and is the only local authority in Nottinghamshire directly to elect its mayor. The district has been influenced by a past of coal mining and textiles, which lasted into the 1990s; since then Mansfield has 20.2 per cent (12,890) of its working-age population claiming out-of-work benefits.. The population has fallen over the last century, despite some industrial diversification.
