About Gringley on the Hill

This charming hill-top village lies in spacious countryside close to the Chesterfield Canal. It shows an abundance of picturesque red-brick properties including out lying farms with ancient barns and dovecotes.

Gringley is noted as the site of Beacon Hill where there is evidence of a pre-historic hillfort.

One of the pleasures of visiting Gringley is to call in at the atmospheric 300 year old Bell Inn, this picturesque three storey building has managed to retain much of its ancient character and offers a friendly welcome to travellers.

An attraction of the village is the magnificent views of the surrounding Nottinghamshire countryside.
