The miners welfare was built in 1923 by the local butterly company. With the decline in coal mining the miners welfare had fallen out of use recently and for was sold off in 2012 for development. The previous  occupiers – codnor boys cricket & football team gained funding from the football association for the construction of a purpose built facility.

The miners welfare had 2 major beer suppliers, one was the Mansfield brewery and the other the Shipstone brewery of Nottingham, it is after the latter that we have named the development.
