Nettleham village is three miles north of the cathedral city of Lincoln in the East Midlands region of the U.K.
Nettleham is nestled in a cleft in hills on top of the Lincoln Edge. There have been settlements here since the bronze age. Nettleham literally means 'place of nettles'. Nettles grow where there is a presence of concentrated phosphates indicating human settlement. The probable reason for settlements here is the shallow beck flowing through it which is colonised by well fed ducks. Local folklore says the until you have fallen into the
beck you are not a true Nettlehamite.
The village centre is made up of cottages built in the local limestone.
A village green is the focus. Two large Horse Chestnut trees provide shade in the summer. A monument to the heroes of 2 world wars is flanked by 2 pubs and the Co-Op. The Co-op provides the local food and domestic products. Local businesses include hair dressers, opthalmic optician, newspaper shops, general store, numerous hair dressers and the best Fish and Chip Shop around - we even still have a Post Office.
Two schools, Nettlaham Cof E (aided) Junior School
and Nettleham Infants School, provide education for the local community and beyond.
For a small sleepy olde worlde village Nettleham is home to some high technology businesses - such as Semiconductor Test, Microwave Component suppliers development.
The Bishops Palace has just been developed as a village feature. One access is through a gate beside the Methodist Church. It is a ruin where the King of England resided during his visits to Lincoln. Lincoln at one time was the capital city of England. It was at this palace that he determined the eldest sons of the monarchy would have the title 'Prince of Wales'.
Four pubs,
The Black Horse, Plough, White Hart, Brown Cow and and two churches, All Saints - Anglican and Nettleham Methodist (NMC), and - oh yes - a tea shop on the green, form the social hub of the village.
