Bircotes is a mining town in the Bassetlaw district of Nottinghamshire, on the border with the metropolitan borough of Doncaster (part of South Yorkshire).[1][2] It is located at 53°25′N 1°3′W / 53.417°N 1.050°W / 53.417; -1.050, and forms the civil parish of Harworth Bircotes with its neighbour Harworth. The parish has a population of around 8,000 people falling to 7,948 at the 2011 Census. The nearest major towns are Doncaster and Worksop. The local school is Serlby Park Academy.

Bircotes was founded in the 1920s, with the discovery of coal during the First World War and the establishment of Harworth Colliery, to provide homes for miners. It is the home to one of the last deep-mine pits in the UK, although the pit is currently only being kept on a care and maintenance basis. Harworth was also the home of world champion cyclist Tom Simpson, who died during the 1967 Tour de France.
