Widmerpool is a village and civil parish in Nottinghamshire , about 10 miles south of Nottingham. At the time of the 2001 census it had a population of 262 [1]. Until the 1960s there had not been any building in the village for 100 years. The parish church of St Peter and St Paul was rebuilt at a cost of £10,000 in the period 1888-1895. Widmerpool Hall on the north side of the village was built in 1872. It is currently undergoing renovation for residential purposes, and was previously the HQ of the AA Patrol Service Training School [2]. The development of Widmerpool Hall will provide 9 apartments, 11 mews style houses and 4 detached houses. There is a brook called Fairway Brook passing through Main Street and Old Hall Drive which joins the Trent near Newark. Widmerpool was recently awarded the 'Best Kept Village' award for Nottinghamshire[3].

[edit] Fictional Person

Kenneth Widmerpool is the anti-hero of Anthony Powell's series of novels A Dance to the Music of Time; Powell was well aware of the Nottinghamshire associations of the name.

[edit] Sources

There is a very detailed history of the village "Widmerpool a Century of Change 1900 to 2000" produced by Geoff Brooks of New Manor Farm Widmerpool (the oldest and one of the few people living in the village that was born there).
