New Ollerton shopping street

Originally built as a colliery village in the mid-1920s, New Ollerton was once acclaimed in the Spectator magazine as ‘an admirable industrial housing scheme’ – also known as a 'model village'. Miners enjoyed a high standard of living, with semi-detached houses, large gardens and hot water supplied directly from the pit. Times have changed - the mine closed in 1994 - but New Ollerton still possesses an innovative nature and the colliery has been replaced by 'The Sherwood Energy Village’, which has received media attention for its environmental principles. Also, the community spirit still remains - the town boasts a lively high street, and an indoor market, which is open on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. If you are visiting the area, New Ollerton is the ideal place to shop for your necessities. Parking is free-of-charge in the town and there are a number of small cafés at which you can stop for a break. Please use our shopping guide to make the most of the amenities.
