Bramcote  Nottinghamshire


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

BRAMCOTE, a village and a parish in the district of Shardlow, and county of Nottingham. The village stands near the verge of the county and near the Nottingham canal and the Erewash river, 1½ mile ENE of Sandiacre and Stapleford r. station, and 5 WSW of Nottingham; and has a post office under that town.—The parish comprises 1,076 acres. ...

Real property, £3,760. Pop., 691. Houses, 147. The property is divided among-a few. Bramcote House is the seat of the Sherwins. The Hemlock stone, a Druidical monument 50 feet high, stands on a bare knoll. Much of the surface is hill and moor. Coal is found. A number of the inhabitants work in the lace and hosiery trades. The living is a p. curacy, annexed to the vicarage of Attenborough, in the diocese of Lincoln. The church was built in 1862; is in the decorated English style; and consists of nave, aisle, chancel, and vestry, with a tower and spire 130 feet high. The previous church contained monuments of the Handleys. There are a Wesleyan chapel, a national school, and charities £40.
