Langwith is a close group of six villages crossing the Derbyshire-Nottinghamshire border, on the River Poulter only about two miles from Warsop, and about four miles from Bolsover, on the A632 road, south of Whaley Thorns. The population is listed under the Nottinghamshire civil parish of Nether Langwith.
These consist of Langwith, Langwith Maltings, Nether Langwith, Upper Langwith, Langwith Bassett and Langwith Junction..
Etymology "Nether" is Saxon/Old German for Lower, "Lang" meaning long, and "with" is Old Norse vīōr wood
Langwith lies just west in the district of Bolsover, Derbyshire, from Nether Langwith, in fact the two villages adjoin. Apart from a row of shops and houses wedged between the North side of the A632 and the river Poulter, the villages have 2 public houses, the Gate Hotel & the Jug and Glass. The entire village is not a post-Second World War council estate; in fact, it is quite a quaint village surrounded by countryside and the majority of houses are privately owned.
Langwith Maltings This part of the village is separated from Langwith and Nether Langwith, by a railway, the Doncaster-Nottingham line, to-day's Robin Hood line. The village was first established following the opening of a railway station here, which was the only to serve this community of villages. This closed as part of the Dr Beeching closures of the 1960s. In the 1950s, the area site next to the railway station was developed into a council Estate, referred to as Dale Close. The Robin Hood line reopened the original with services between Nottingham and Worksop..
Etymology for Langwith see Nether Langwith, "Maltings", refers to the Malt House which existed here in operation, up until its closure and subsequent demolition in 1993.
Upper Langwith is a small village straddling the A632, at a fork for Langwith Junction and Bolsover, in Bolsover (district). The village is home to the Devonshire Arms pub, a mediaeval parish church and two manor houses.
Nether Langwith is also home to the man who got struck by lightning twice and survived to tell his story. Just a few years later on 25 October 2011, the village was struck by lightning for a third time, which managed to cause fire to a house on Wellfit Grove, near the Jug and Glass.
