About D H Lawrence Birthplace Museum

Admirers of D.H.Lawrence (1885-1930) should visit this place, the great 20th-century writer and poet once said of it " The scene of my Nottingham-Derby novels all centres around Eastwood, where I was born" he further said "whoever stands on Walker Street will see the whole landscape of Sons and Lovers before him". Such was his pride in the place where he entered the world.

8a, Victoria Street lies in the heart of a working class colliery area, it was here Lawrence lived with his parents. His mother is believed to have always felt superior to her miner husband, it was his father who fostered the budding writers vivid imagination and it was from him that he inherited his love of the countryside.

The museum is an amazing recreation of what life was like in a working class Victorian family of the days when every other man was employed in the mines. Visitors can see the bedroom where the young boy was born, he was christened David Herbert Richard Lawrence, but known as "Bertie" to his family. The family moved around the Eastwood area and are known to have lived at number 8 Walker Street, for 12 years.

The birthplace museum covers the life and times of D.H. Lawrence, it further shows the harshness of the times, particularly the communal washroom where his mother would have spent weary hours toiling over the family laundry.

Special events are held at the museum, there is a craft centre next door and the sop in the museum sells a wide selection of souvenirs all to do with Lawrence, his writing and the countryside he so loved. The shop also stocks many of his books and video's, one with an interview with Peggy Needham, his niece, who recall's Lawrence as a much loved uncle.

D.H. Lawrence was a giant of the literary world of his times, the museum offers a rich absorbing experience for everyone. It is a place any visitor to the area should not miss.
