  About your Area
 

Lambley is a small village near Nottingham, England and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 by the name of Lambeleia. One of its most famous "children" was Lord Ralph Cromwell. Born in the village in 1394, he became the Lord Treasurer of England to Henry VI, and was responsible for submitting the first budget to Parliament.

In the 19th Century the village became famous for its framework knitting industry and the infamous Luddite social movement of the time began here when it looked like the prosperous cottage knitting industry would be replaced by stocking frames and other new mechanical devices being introduced.

Situated in a horseshoe shaped valley, the village remained isolated for hundreds of years and even today few residents of nearby Nottingham are aware of its existence, or if they are, how to get there. There is a stream called Cocker Beck running through the "Dumbles" (woods) and on through the middle of the village. It's a pretty village, mostly untouched by urbanisation, since it is situated in a green belt. Due in part to its close commuting distance to Nottingham (approx 6 miles) houses in the village have become high priced real estate.

Like many old villages Lambley has more public houses and Churches than local shops or amenities. Lambley used to have 3 public houses. The once named "Nags Head" is now a successful restaurant called "The Lambley". Currently it has two public houses, The Woodlark Inn and Robin Hood & Little John, but just over a hundred years ago there were five pubs, even though the population back then was just 770.

Lambley still boasts one of the few remaining village garages in the area called "Lambley Motors", a locally run garage by the Tomlinson family. Lambley Motors provides a small selection of provisions in addition to the 'attended' fuel service, servicing and repairs and van sales.

Lambley was one of the worst affected areas during the heavy flooding that hit England in June 2007.
