Pump Farm Day Nursery - Preschool education
This is a small family run nursery who offer government funding and offer childcare / education for children from six weeks to five years. They also have a holiday club during the school holidays for children aged five to eleven.
Tuxford Primary School and Early Years Centre (ages three to eleven)
Tuxford School recently underwent a full re-build, completed in March 2007 by a company called Transform Schools who spent millions of pounds re-building secondary schools within the Bassetlaw area as part of a PFI funded project.
The new Tuxford School is located on what used to be the old school field along with a field next to it which has been bought over. The site where the old school stood has now been converted into the new school playing field and nature areas.
Tuxford Academy & Sixth Form
Opened as a County Secondary School (secondary modern school) in 1958 Tuxford Academy and Sixth Form became a comprehensive in 1976. It performs very well compared with most of Nottinghamshire and especially with most of Bassetlaw. Tuxford Academy has steadily increased in size (now almost fifteen hundred students) and reputation and is one of the highest performing state secondary schools in Nottinghamshire, having gained an OfSTED grade of 'outstanding' in recent years.
It has been designated as a National Support School and is a specialist Technology College and Training School, which leads amongst the loose federations of secondary and primary schools in Nottinghamshire. It is well known for its welcoming atmosphere and innovative practices in education. Tuxford also has a community primary school.
Not only is it surrounded by great countryside but Tuxford also has excellent transport links:
Two miles from the Markham Moor Junction of the A1, which makes it an hour's drive to Leeds, forty minutes to Meadowhall and Sheffield, thirty minutes from historic Lincoln and only forty minutes to Nottingham.
Fifteen minutes drive from Retford and Newark train stations (which have free street parking and provide direct routes to London's Kings Cross in ninety minutes and eighty minutes respectively).
Thirty minutes drive from Doncaster Sheffield and one hour from East Midlands Airports. It is only ten minutes from Gamston Airfield which is used mainly for small private aircrafts and is base for several flying schools.
Tuxford is a small, picturesque market town on the southern edge of the Bassetlaw district in northern Nottinghamshire. It has a distinctive Georgian townscape and many local amenities having grown up as a coaching station on the original 'Great North Road.'
This quaint village was once a hub for travellers and at one time boasted four railway stations (through which, the East Coast mainline originally passed). Today, it remains a great destination for tourists thanks to its variety of independent shops and attractions.
Some of the highlights include a large, working tower windmill, originally built in 1820 and restored to working order between 1982 and 1993. It is open to visitors daily (except Tuesdays) throughout the year. The mill, with its large white sails, dominates Tuxford's skyline. The mill still produces flour which is sold from the Mill Shop and Tea Rooms. The mill bakery is famous for its cakes, soups & rolls.
As a historic coaching town it has a 'Museum of the Horse' and the 'Walks of Life handcart museum', which chronicles Tuxford's history on wheels.
The town boasts an old lock up where the prisoners stayed overnight on their way to London and the unique 'Rebel Stone' where it is said that a Jacobite prisoner 'of some importance' broke his neck leaping from a coach and was buried standing up on the side of the old Great North Road. It also has ancient tunnels running underneath it, although these are not open to the public, which are said to have been originally used to transport beer barrels around the town to the numerous inns that sprang up to cater to the passing trade.
The town now has three good-sized car parks, all within easy walking distance of the museums and shops. There is also a country clothing shop, a bric-a-brac shop, as well as a modern art gallery and coffee shop. On the edge of the town are two camping and caravanning venues including Orchard Park on Marnham Road. There is a local supermarket on Newcastle Street and three village pubs. The nearest sizeable towns are Newark-on-Trent and Retford, which both have good rail links to the North and South and have numerous restaurants, wine bars and cafes, as well as well-established farmer's markets.

Other Places Of Interest
Other places of interest nearby include Laxton, a picturesque village where the strip farming of medieval times can still be seen, and which is also home to the National Holocaust Centre, West Markham, which is about a mile away and has one of the oldest Saxon churches in the country and Milton where visitors can see the mausoleum built by the Duke of Newcastle for his wife in 1832. Tuxford itself was designated a conservation area in 1980 and has been greatly restored with the help of English Heritage. It had a population of 2,649 in the 2011 census.
The Maltings History
In the eighteenth and nineteenth century, most villages and market towns commonly had malt houses or 'malting's' that served to supply the local needs of publicans, country estates and home brewers. It is a building where cereal grain (usually barley) is converted into 'malt'. The grain would be soaked in water, allowing it to artificially germinate, and then quickly dried out by kilning, to prevent further growth. The malt liquor is then used in brewing beer, whisky and making certain foods. At this time, beer used to be the staple drink (before tea and coffee) as a way of ensuring that water was potable (drinkable). Malt is weighed by volume where eight gallons or thirty-six litres equal one bushel. People who worked in malting's were known as 'Maltsters'.
Malting sheds are typically long and low in structure (rarely more than two storeys high) in a vernacular style (architecture concerned with functional use rather than monumental buildings). During Summer months, maltings often closed as germination of barley is hindered by higher seasonal temperatures. This, however, provided employment for agricultural workers whose labour was limited in the Winter months.
Traditional maltings were largely phased out during the twentieth century in favour of mechanised production techniques and became less profitable because of changes in legislation around taxation. With lack of demand many buildings fell into dereliction.
Modern Day Malting Conversions
Although most maltings buildings have sadly been lost over the years, thankfully some (like ours) have been converted to alternative uses. A good example is the 'Snape Maltings' in Suffolk which is now used as a concert hall. This building as does ours sensitively incorporates modern design whilst respecting its historical and industrial significance.
The Tuxford Maltings Project
The Tuxford site itself extends to 0.13 acres with an original footprint of 540m2. One of the pictures included here shows the dilapidated site prior to its purchase in 2016. Nearly two years then passed whilst Dynamical Developments Ltd worked with local conservation team and planners to fully survey the site and agree on the best way forward to preserve and sensitively restore it to use.
Work finally commenced during the Summer of 2018 and is anticipated to be finished around Spring-Summer 2021. Dynamical Developments Ltd are exceptionally pleased and privileged to have worked with local conservation teams in saving this historic industrial building from years of dereliction and decay. It will bring a whole new chapter to its history within Tuxford village, hopefully for future generations to enjoy. It will contain four exclusive three bedroom bespoke homes and a two-bedroom luxury apartment, all with a self-contained enclosed communal garden area and secure gated parking.
