Huthwaite is located in the United Kingdom on the British Isles. Close to the heart of England amongst its East Midland Region, this provides name to our nearest international airport at Derby. Overlooking that counties rural countryside, Huthwaite is perched upon far west boundaries of Nottinghamshire. Around 12 miles away from the defensive city of Nottingham upon the river Trent, is where roads and rails radiated connections to our main Mansfield market through nearer towns all localised inside an Ashfield District.
Indexed maps expose 19th century developments, turning a rural hamlet named Hucknall-under-Huthwaite into a thriving 20th century township called Hucknall Huthwaite. From 1907 renaming the Huthwaite Urban District Council certainly looked towards advancing individual town status. But the rapid residential growth became equiped with modern utility services when again falling under Sutton-in-Ashfield, and Huthwaite only retained status of a large mining village when further taken over by the current Ashfield District Council.
