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.
