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 buildings, a beautiful Perpendicular church, and an open space called the Pingle, which was the site of a medieval Manor House. Our Primary School takes pupils from a wide catchment, and has an excellent academic record. The village is also home to many businesses, and possesses three public houses and a fashionable restaurant. 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. The remains of a windmill exist on a hill to the north east.

Postscript 2015 - the Electoral Ward boundaries will be changed in the near future, resulting in changes to the population of the Ward.
