Hello and welcome to Pinxton

Pinxton is a small village on the eastern side of Derbyshire, with a few acres still in Nottinghamshire. The inventor John King lived in Pinxton. He made the mine cage safety detaching hook, which became world famous, and his old workshop was converted into a small museum. The church of St Helen partly dates from medieval times and possibly stands on the site of a small castle that once existed here. The population of Pinxton is currently 4202, with 2083 males and 2119 females.

Today, the coal mines and lime kilns have gone but the community spirit common to mining villages remains. Click below to find out more about Pinxton…
