Local studies at Holmewood LibraryResources available at Holmewood Library
At Holmewood, although the local history collection is only small it is interesting. There is a cuttings file of news items about Holmewood, some local maps including coal plans and a fine collection of around 250 images of Holmewood and Williamthorpe colliery.
Local ephemera and parish magazines are collected too. Census returns for the communities of Ault Hucknall, Heath, North Wingfield and Rowthorne are available as photocopies covering most years from 1841 to 1901.
