Exploring Greater Nottingham
South of the River Trent, Ruddington is a small village 5 miles south of Nottingham with lots of interesting history. Ruddington Village & Ruddington Grange are both considered to be part of Greater Nottingham and there’s some interesting history to read up on. Ruddington Grange manor house was built in 1828, giving the hamlet its name and there is the ‘lost village’ of Flawford’ marked with a headstone signaling where the Flawford St Peter’s Church used to be.
Recreational fun on the golf course
For some relaxing sport action, you could visit the Ruddington Grange Golf Club on Wilford Lane. This attractive 6515 yard Par 72 course opened in 1988 and welcomes visitors. Food is served at the clubhouse through the day and there is a great professional shop on site as well as lessons for either juniors or adults. Book your tee time online at their website.
