To the casual visitor, Eastwood may appear much the same as any other of the small nondescript towns which dot the Midlands. Just discernible behind the new shop facades and modem traffic is the original structure of a small hilltop town clustered around the market place where the Nottingham, Mansfield, Derby and Ilkeston Roads meet. A closer study of Eastwood, however, reveals a number of interesting connections with the past. This article attempts to outline some of the major landmarks in the evolution of coalmining and transport development in the Eastwood area that seem of relevance as a back drop to the construction of The Buildings, an area of terraced housing, in the middle of the last century and the recently completed improvement scheme for this neighbourhood. The scheme is then considered in its more immediate planning context in an attempt to identify the major planning issues involved.
