Groundwork in North Nottinghamshire

Groundwork Creswell, Ashfield & Mansfield has been operating in North Nottinghamshire for over 20 years and has a really good reputation in the area. We cover the areas of Ashfield, Bassetlaw, Mansfield, Newark and Sherwood. We are involved in a wide variety of exciting and innovative projects across North Nottinghamshire.

We also own a heritage building in Bassetlaw, known as The Willow Works, which our construction department have developed. It was once one of the main cottage industries of the area.
