Eastwood Letting Agents
Eastwood was once a coal mining town in the district of Broxtowe in Nottinghamshire. It has a population of 18,000 and it situated north-west of Nottingham. A famous author – D.H Lawrence was born in Eastwood in 1885, his birthplace and residences now attract visitors from all over the world. His book ‘The White Peacock’ features alot of references to the coal pits and the local areas. Lawrence would be surprised to know now that Eastwood is now six times bigger than it was in his day. Nottingham lettings cover the whole area of Eastwood and would be happy to arrange a consultation to discuss what we can offer you regarding the letting of your property.
