Bleasby Community Website
For such a small village, Bleasby has much to offer visitors as a destination to explore and enjoy at any time of year.
Please take a stroll through our Community Website to find out more about local outdoor recreations, a brief history of Bleasby and information about travel, parking and where to eat, drink and sleep.
There are several public buildings and attractions to take in, including St Mary's Church, built mainly in the 13th and 14th centuries but “improved” by the Victorians; the Village Hall, once the village school and now a most attractive and well cared for meeting venue and the primary school, built in the 1960s and still providing good education for the children of Bleasby and surrounding parishes. Adjacent to the church are the Bleasby War Memorials and in the centre of the old village is the Glebe Field, now a most beautiful area functioning as the ‘village green’ and owned by Bleasby Parish Council on behalf of the people of Bleasby Parish. Jubilee Ponds is an area where local parishioners can enjoy gentle recreation and nature conservation, also owned by the Parish Council and managed and maintained by local volunteers with the welcome assistance of Bleasby Carp Syndicate. A short stroll away is the River Trent with Ferry End, an original crossing of the river and a pleasant spot to watch passing boats and wildlife.
Bleasby is well served when it comes to food and drink and public transport. The friendly and welcoming Waggon & Horses pub adjacent to the village green sits at one end of the village, opposite the church and the splendid Manor Farm Tea Shoppe at the other end of the village, which includes a Shepherds Hut for over night stays!
Nearby attractions include the beautiful Minster town of Southwell, the National Trust Workhouse and Southwell Racecourse.
