Arnold

"Arnold Parish extends from three to nearly six miles north of Nottingham, contains 4,704 inhabitants, and 4,670 acres of land, including 2,280 acres of Sherwood Forest. It was enclosed in 1789, when 700 acres were allotted to the impropriator, which was then sold to Thomas Holdsworth Esq., who is subject to the reparation of the church; and 23a 3r 37p were allotted to the Crown.
Arnold is a large and populous village, half a mile east of Mansfield Road, and four miles north of Nottingham. It is pleasantly seated upon a sand rock, and has several neat mansions. The inhabitants are principally employed in framework knitting. Arnold Grove is a beautiful residence, occupied by William Williams Esq., solicitor."
[White's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
