Ollerton of Old

by | 2 July 2023 | Heritage, Sherwood

A new book charting the history of the Markham Family of Ollerton Hall and Worksop Manor is now on sale in the Aurora Centre on Memorial Avenue in Worksop.

Ollerton of Old, which also covers other local gentry including the Foljambe and Savile families, is richly illustrated with many pictures across its 89 pages.

The book is the work of local couple Tony and Teresa Bak, who took on the project during lockdown. The book is dedicated to the memory of their son Kurt, who tragically lost his life to cancer aged just 30. All profits from the sale of this book will be donated to Cancer Research in Kurt’s memory.

This slice of local history costs £10.00, and you can get it from the Aurora Centre knowing that your purchase will be helping fund a charity so close to the hearts of so many.
