Welcome to Costock Village
Costock is situated in the south of the Borough on the A60 Loughborough Road. The village is situated in an elevated position in the Nottinghamshire Wolds Character Area and is surrounded by arable and pasture land. The neighbouring village of East Leake is situated less than a mile to the west along Leake Road while just over a mile to the south along the A60, lies the village of Rempstone.
Costock’s historic core, bounded by Church Lane and Chapel Lane is very picturesque and has a genuine village feel with winding and secluded lanes, trees and high walls.
The church and Manor House stand close together, the latter being one of the most charming Elizabethan stone houses in Nottinghamshire. The church of St Giles on the other hand, has undergone major restoration in 1688, 1848 and 1862, though some of the original 14th century masonry, both internal and external, still remains.
The eastern part of the small Conservation Area is separated from the remainder by Loughborough Road which tends to detract from the balance and unity of the village.
The 7 Listed Buildings within the Conservation Area are somewhat dispersed. Highfields House (outside the Conservation Area), to the north of the village, bears the inscription “Sir T Parkyns AD 1729”. This was the dower house to Bunny Hall. (see Costock Appraisal and Management Plan)
Free Tree Scheme from Rushcliffe Borough Council
Following the success of last year’s tree schemes in the Borough in which individual residents could apply for two free trees and the parish council for ten, Rushcliffe have said the idea is to be repeated again this year.
For residents, two trees will be available – crab apple and rowan. Anyone wishing to apply can do so to Mr Paul Phillips whose direct telephone number at the council offices at Rushcliffe Arena, Rugby Road, West Bridgford is 914 8595.
The trees supplied would be between 1.5 and 2 metres in height and would be complete with tree guards, mulch mat and tree stakes.
Any queries maybe addressed to Mike Elliott, clerk to Costock Parish Council 0115 937 6506
