Information for Residents
During the present coronavirus pandemic situation, the parish council is unable to hold normal meetings and has therefore decided that the
Annual Meeting of the Council
Annual Parish Meeting
both due in May should be cancelled.
The next meeting of the council is due to take place on Wednesday July 8th. Information on this will be shown in the parish noticeboard and on this website in due course, but it is likely it will be a virtual meeting and therefore carried out on-line (and not in person at the parish church).
Further details on this will be posted before the date of the meeting.
Mike Elliott, Clerk to the Council, May 1 2020
About Stanton-on-the-Wolds Village
Stanton-on-the-Wolds is a small village ten miles south-east of Nottingham. The Saxon settlement that became the village was called 'Stanton' or 'stoney town' after the copious stones or boulders found in the locality; 'Wold' refers to a low wooded hill.
The medieval village lay between the church (now dedicated to All Saints) and the manor house to the west. Following sixteenth century enclosure for sheep farming, the village houses were dilapidated and the village became deserted.
