Laxton is unique among the village of England today in that here, and only here, has the open fieldssystem of farming survived, unchanged since the days before the Norman Conquest.The farms locally are Crown estates.The village with gently rising ground, streets and lanes are undeveloped and St Michael's Church is a central feature of the village with also the very pretty Dovecote Inn standing in a corner location.The Motte and Bailey Castle is said to be the best preserved in the country.Notwithstanding the character of the village is this well situated for commuting to Newark, Mansfield, Southwell and Nottingham.
Access points to the A1 north and south are within a couple of miles.There are good amenities available in the small market town of Tuxford just 2 miles away and here there is the excellent Tuxford Academy School.The village is approached by country lanes, there are no main roads and miles of local walks.
