The town of Retford is situated in the north-east corner of Nottinghamshire. It is an ancient market town on the Great North road. Retford gained its first charter in 1246, when Henry III granted the right for a fair, this was later extended to holding a Saturday Market by Edward I in 1275. Retford gets its name from an ancient ford crossing over the River Idle which bisects the town, near to where the current bridge on Bridgegate lies. The town was largely destroyed by a fire in 1528, but prospered after the Great North Road was diverted to run through it in 1766 and the East Coast Main Line and Chesterfield Canal was built to run through Retford. The town has some fine Georgian and Victorian frontages and a large number of former coaching inns. Sherwood Forest lies to the south-west of the town. Also see Retford & Retford attractions
