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.

Costock Manor House
St Giles Church
St Giles Church

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.

COSTOCK PARISH NEWS

 Dog Mess

Once again there are problems with abandoned bags of dog faeces around the village particularly in the dog walking field and, on one occasion in the church. Please take your filled bags home or to one of the bins provided. Leaving the bags on the ground or hanging in hedges is anti-social and a health hazard.

Student Grants

The Charities may be able to help students with a grant towards the costs of books or other course materials.

Young persons under the age of 25 years living in the parishes of Bunny, Bradmore or Costock undertaking a course of higher education are eligible for a one-off grant. The scheme is not limited to new students and those already on a course who have not previously applied for a grant may be eligible also. If you feel that you meet the criteria or have sons or daughters who meet those criteria, they may apply in writing to the clerk to the trustees at the address below providing evidence of acceptance onto their chosen course. Applications will be considered by the trustees at the next quarterly meeting following their receipt. The next meeting is scheduled for 7th September 2022. Applications may be made after that date.
