Mansfield is a town in the county of Nottinghamshire, England. A former mining town, Mansfield remains the largest town in the Nottinghamshire. Located on the borders of Sherwood Forest, the legendary home of Robin Hood and his Merry Men, much of the local tourist trade is centred around the famous outlaw. The forest itself is well worth a visit whether you have an interest in Robin Hood or not, because it is one of the most ancient and unspoiled areas of oak woodland in Britain. In the centre of Mansfield there still stands a tree that, legend has it, was declared the centre point of Sherwood Forest at around the time of Hood's adventures.
One of the most striking sights that greets you upon your arrival in Mansfield is the grand Victorian viaduct that bisects the town centre, with its 15 graceful arches of red brick, one of the largest examples of its type. In the town: there are a number of 18th and 19th century mills and foundries that have since found other uses, such as nightclubs; the old Mansfield station building, designed by none other than Isambard Kingdom Brunel, had fallen into disrepair but has now been completely restored to its former glory; Mansfield's Old Town Hall, with its early Victorian frontage and Doric columns, offers an imposing presence over the market square.
