Village Green

Nettleham village green is located in the very heart of the village and is the scene for a number of annual events throughout the year, including the popular Summer Carnival in July.

Perhaps the most striking feature of the Green is the variety of large trees varying in age from just a few years to some specimens probably over 50yrs. The trees include walnut, acacia, oak, sequoia,cherry, hawthorn, horse chestnut, mountain and manna ash and the inevitable sycamore! A number of these trees have been presented to the village over the years to mark its numerous successes in the annual 'Best Kept Village' competition sponsored by the Council for the Preservation of Rural England.

In December, a large Christmas tree decorated with lights provides the focus for the annual Carol Service, when villagers come together to celebrate the festive season.

Here also may be found the War Memorial, where villagers, both young and old, gather together on Remembrance Day and lay wreaths of poppies to commemorate the men of the village who lost their lives in both World Wars.

Two of the oldest public houses, The Plough and the Black Horse, are located on the Green, affording visitors the opportunity to sample a range of traditional local ales and tasty food.

Nearby is the Nettleham community hub incorporating the library and offering a wide range of activities to the residents of the village.

The Co-operative supermarket stands on the east side of the Green and Church Street, leading to All Saints parish church, is the location for a variety of shops and other businesses.
