"Nuthall Parish includes the township and chapelry of Awsworth, and contains 685 inhabitants, and 1,200 acres of land. Nuthall is a small rural village on the Alfreton Road, 4½ miles north west by north of Nottingham. Robert Holden Esq. is lord of the manor, and principal owner of the land, but Wm. Faulconbridge and a few others have estates here. Nuthall Temple is the elegant seat of Thos. Nixon Esq., situated in an extensive park, with beautiful gardens, and a fine verdant lawn. The house is square, with two very low wings, and a handsome portico in front, approached by a light ballustraded range of steps. The roof rises raplidly to a large and lofty dome in the centre, which hides all the chimneys, and is surrounded with an airy ballustrade, commanding an extensive view of the surrounding country. The dome within displays a profusion of ornamental plaster work, and has a light gallery, supported by the pillars of the magnificent hall, which lighted from the dome, and is of an octagon figure, 36 feet in diameter, decorated with the richest exhibitions of plastic art." [WHITE's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
This village and small parish lie 135 miles north of London and about 4.5 miles north-west of Nottingham. The parish covered about 1,644 acres in 1881, but is much smaller now. The parish included the hamlet of Cinder Hills about one mile south-east of the village and the hamlet of Shilo near Awsworth. Nuthall has in recent decades become a pleasant little part of the Nottingham city conurbation.
