Lambley  Nottinghamshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Lambley like this:

LAMBLEY, a village and a parish in Basford district, Notts. The village stands 2 miles NNW of Burton-Joyce r. station, and 5 NE of Nottingham; and is irregularly built. The parish comprises 2,170 acres. Post-town, Nottingham. Real property, £4,333. Pop. in 1851,951; in 1861,836. Houses, 195. ...

The decrease of pop. was caused by depression in the framework-knitting trade. The property is much subdivided. The manor, with Lambley House, belongs to the Misses Matthews. There is a barrow. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Lincoln. Value, £600.* Patron, the Rev. A. R. D. Flamsteed. The church is early English, and has been partially repaired. There are a Wesleyan chapel and a national school.
