Lambley Village, Nottinghamshire


Welcome to the community website for Lambley, Nottinghamshire

 

 

The Village
Lambley is situated in a shallow valley, close to the floodplain of the River Trent. It also lies adjacent to Gedling, a suburb of Nottingham, but still retains the air of an archetypal English village.

The village has a population of some 550 (although the Electoral Ward contains nearly 2000 people), and consists of a mix of new and old properties. The centre of the village is a conservation area with many fine vernacular buildings, a beautiful Perpendicular church, and an open space called the Pingle, which was the site of a medieval Manor House. The remains of a windmill exist on a hill to the north east.

Our Primary School takes pupils from a wide catchment area, and has an excellent academic record. The village is also home to many small businesses, and possesses three public houses - The Robin Hood & Little John, The Woodlark Inn, and, some way out of the actual village, The Traveller's Rest. The most famous natural feature of the village is probably Lambley Dumbles, a series of small, deep, valleys running into the village from the direction of Mapperley Plains, to the west. Lambley also practices the annual celebration of Cowslip Sunday.
