Stanton on the Wolds Parish Council
Stanton on the Wolds Village History
In July 2006 the Parish Council published a 112 page book on the history of the village. The book is printed and profusely illustrated in full colour throughout with chapters on the 'early' Stanton, the village in Roman, Saxon and Norman times, Medieval Stanton, 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th Century Stanton, the history of the Parish Church of All Saints and finally a chapter on the role of agriculture in the village history.
A few copies of the book are still available and may be purchased at the reduced price of £4.00 from the Post Office or the Library in Keyworth or from any of the Parish Councillors.
In addition the following are longer articles on some of the more famous events and people associated with the village over its history.
Since the book was published further short articles of local history content have been published in the bi-monthly 'Parish News'. These are listed below with active links to the various newsletters.
