View of Calverton from near Fox Wood
View of Calverton from near Fox Wood
This view effectively covers the historical development of the village. The church was obviously the centre of the medieval village, and many traditional houses are clustered around it. The mass of grey roofs beyond the church identify the development of the village as a colliery village following the opening of Calverton Colliery in 1952. These houses were the Local Authority's contribution to the development. In the foreground are more modern houses representing the change of status to basically a dormitory village for Nottingham, following the closure of the colliery.
