I and my partner are planning a move to Church Warsop - not sure why - it just 'feels' right. Would like to hear from residents of Church Warsop with either postive or negatives comments on what to expect. Thank you for any replies.

What is it like for crime (petty or otherwise) and what's the 'hoodie' count? LOL.

Hi and a very warm welcome to the forum yvonne.

I think Church Warsop has its problems just like any other village, but it's certainly not the local crime hotspot and there are some really nice people living there.

We have very few problems with crime in the area I live in, though that is 'Old' Church Warsop. In this part there are few teenagers and young people so it's pretty quiet, though I can't really speak for the main part of Church Warsop. When I used to do a paper round there, I certainly found that many people were friendly to me, but as with anywhere you get the odd person thats rude and not very friendly. Overall, I think Warsop's a great area to live in :)

Ahh Yvonne, I'm sure you'll find the natives very friendly, not many of us bite! :lol: If there's anything at all you'd like to know, just ask away and I'm sure someone will be able to help.

I love Church Warsop, but I'm biased as I was born there. It's still special to me and I would definitely buy a house there, though I only live a mile away now and I still have relatives living there. I'm sure you'll love it. The surrounding countryside is beautiful, we have woodlands that have chestnuts in season at the moment and are beautiful in May when the bluebells are out.

Hi there & welcome to Warsop & the forum :)

We only moved here at the beginning of the year & love it. The people are friendly, the shops are near by & good & I don't care what anybody else says, I love the Thursday market :wink: I know it's small but when you've lived in the middle of nowhere with the nearest shop a car ride away, it's a great. Plus, if want something bigger go to Mansfield town centre, plenty of choice there :wink: So I'd recommend Warsop to anybody =D> .............................. mind you, we have Halloween, Bonfire Night & Christmas to come yet, so maybe ask me after then :lol: :lol: :lol: :wink:

We currently live in Essex within walking distance of the county town - but I hardly go there as I am not a great one for shopping! I'm sure we will find it totally different! In a good way, I hope. :wink:

We're a train ride from our county town, though we have a small shopping centre in Market Warsop and a couple of market towns within a short drive if you do fancy shopping around. We're on the edge of Sherwood Forest with some nice cycle routes and have some beautiful country parks as well as our very own award winning Carrs and River Meden, plus we're less than half an hour from the Peak District. I think we have the best of all worlds here. Warsop is known as the place where people leave their doors open, we like to think this is because we're neighbourly and welcome everyone. :wink:

We have some nice community events like our famous summer carnival, three parishes walk, Warsop's got talent, Warsop Panto and Christmas Market.

When are you coming to join us?
