Awsworth is a village and civil parish in the Broxtowe district of Nottinghamshire, England. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 2,266. The village is near the edge of the Greater Nottingham area, between Kimberley and Ilkeston, Derbyshire.

Awsworth once had a station on the Great Northern (later LNER) line from Nottingham to Derby which crossed the Erewash Valley to Ilkeston over the Bennerley Viaduct, closed in September 1964. At Awsworth Junction, a short distance to the east, a branch line curved away northwards to Pinxton. This line closed in January 1963. Near the junction it crossed a viaduct almost half a mile in length across the Giltbrook valley, known variously as Awsworth Viaduct, Giltbrook Viaduct, Kimberley Viaduct, but more commonly in the local area as the "Forty Bridges," though the actual combined number of arches and girder spans was 43. This viaduct is no more but the Bennerley Viaduct is still in place.
