Located on the edge of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire 3
miles from junction 27 of the M1.
Westwood was originally a very tiny farming hamlet with
only one or two local farms and some stockinger’s cottages at
the ‘Bents’ dating back to the 1700’s and perhaps before. In
the mid 1800’s ‘Westwoodville’ was developed, long rows of
terraced cottages at Palmerston Street (Old Westwood) and
also at New Westwood for coal miner’s and iron worker’s
families. Over the passing decades, Westwood has also reinvented itself, still home to a small infant’s school, threatened
with closure on one or two rare occasions but re-invigorated
by local support that affirms the need for its existence, green
and rolling landscapes and a return to being the more
traditionally rural part of our community.
The Royal Oak is that last standing village pub in Westwood
out of the three it originally had. With traditional features in
one side and a modern stylish the other. all flowing with solid wood tables and wood stools somethings really unique.
With stunning country views on the rear of the building its
perfect for any event. and space for a marquee to host a private event or wedding.
