About Us

Welcome to our brand new style village website funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund. This site updates the original jacksdale.org.uk first launched in 2001.

The site is hosted and maintained by JACHs – Jacksdale Area Culture & Heritage. We are a non-profit making heritage group who organise heritage display days and have been collecting photographs, newspaper articles and documents relating to the history of Jacksdale and Westwood, Notts since 2001. Some of our holdings are on display on this website, but our collection is extensive so please contact us as we may have further information available. Due to our close proximity with Derbyshire we also hold some information relating to Codnor Park and Ironville, Riddings and Somercotes.

Our main objective is to preserve our village history and make it accessible to all. If you have any information relating to this area or surrounding villages which you can share we would be delighted to hear from you. We are interested in all subjects from all eras – from sports to schools and industry to fashion, snippets and snapshots large or small.
