Radcliffe on Trent

"Radcliffe On Trent is a large and well-built village and parish, six miles east by south of Nottingham, remarkable for its very romantic scenery, being situated upon a lofty cliff on the south bank of the Trent, from which it has its name, and which affords it some extensive and beautiful prospects over the vale, watered by that broad and meandering river. It contains 259 houses, 1,273 inhabitants and about 1,873 acres of fertile land, which was enclosed in 1788, when the tithes were exonerated by an allotment of 100 acres to the impropriator, and 40 acres to the vicar.
Earl Manvers is proprietor of nearly all the land, and lord of the manor. He is also patron of the vicarage, which is valued in the King's books at £4 12s 6d, now at £198, and has received two augmentaions from Queen Anne's Bounty, with which 26 acres of land have been purchased."
[White's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
