Town of Worksop
The town of Worksop. in the English East Midlands, forms part of the local government district of the Bassetlaw, the most northerly district of Nottinghamshire. Bessetlaw was formed in 1974 by the merger of the municipal borough and rural district of Worksop with the municipal borough and rural district of East Retford (also known as Retford).
Only one Jewish congregation, the Worksop Hebrew Congregation, is known to have existed in Worksop. Also, during the mid-nineteenth century, there were also a number of Jewish families living in Retford, a few miles to the east of Worksop, although these do not appear to have established a formal congregation.
