The village stands 5½ miles S by W of Worksop [railway] station, and 8 N by E of Mansfield; has a post office under Mansfield; and was once a market-town. The township includes also the hamlets of Bonbusk and Milnthorpe. Population: 540. Houses: 99.
"The parish contains likewise the townships of Norton, Holbeck, and Langwith; and bears the name of Norton-Cuckney. Acres: 5,510. Real property: £6,889. Population: 1,454. Houses: 261. The property is all in one estate. A number of the inhabitants are employed in cotton and stuff mills. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Lincoln. Value: £250. Patron, Earl Mangers. The church is old but good; and there are a chapel of ease, a Wesleyan preaching-room, and a parochial school.
