 Annual Village Clean Up Day - Saturday 1st October 2022

Due to the pandemic North Nibley has been unable to arrange the annual clean up day over the past two years and are now delighted to announce that we are able to hold one this year. The date of the annual clean up will be Saturday 1st October 2022, hopefully the foliage will have died back by then and the weather will be kind to us. More details to follow as we get nearer the time.



Light on the fields at North Nibley









North Nibley is an attractive village on the edge of the Cotswolds located close to the river Severn between Bristol and Gloucester. Its name means a farm or settlement on a hilltop. The first record is in the register known as Cartularium Saxonicum in 940 AD as 'hnibban lege'. The village is of considerable antiquity and was formerly famed for the manufacture of woollen cloth.

The Field is also used by pupils of the adjoining Village School and is currently leased to the Trust through a 25 year lease from June 2007. In 2010 the Trust erected a sports pavilion, jointly funded by the Trust, (through money raised by them) and the Parish Council".
