This beautiful village is well worth a visit. Small in size, but brimming with history and heritage. Teversal has a number of listed buildings, including the Grade 1 St. Katherine's Church.  This lovely building still possesses box pews amongst a wealth of fascinating antiquities. The Manor House was the setting for D H Lawrence's Lady Chatterley's Lover. Lawrence was known to frequent the local pub, the Carnarvon Arms, formerly the Cross Keys. Speaking of the name Carnarvon, the Earls bearing that name were the Lords of the Manor. The fifth earl was the financier of the ill-fated excavation of Tutankhamen’s tomb and its association with the infamous curse. The Teversal Trails Visitor Centre is located on Carnarvon Street with a large car park that serves the Teversal football, cricket and bowls clubs. 

Close by is Silverhill Woods.  an ex-colliery spoil heap,  which is now the highest point in Nottinghamshire. On reaching its summit, you will encounter a truly stunning bronze sculpture. It depicts a local miner, known locally by many as Dave. From here you can see other former mining villages and sites, and on a clear day, Lincoln Cathedral can be seen in the distance. The magnificent Hardwick Hall and the Pleasley Pit Nature Reserve and Museum are both to be found along the Teversal Trails walking network. Also bordering the village you will find Teversal Pastures, a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
