Local Area

NORTH NIBLEY, a parish in the hundred of Upper Berkeley, in the county of Gloucestershire, between Wotton-under-Edge and Dursley on the edge of the Cotswolds. The Tyndale Monument is visible from many miles away and is a useful landmark for anyone approaching the village from North, South or West. North Nibley has a thriving Church of England Primary school. The village is of considerable antiquity, and was formerly famed for the manufacture of woollen cloth.

The last battle between private armies fought on English soil was at Nibley Green on 20th March, 1469/70 between William, Lord Berkeley, and Thomas, Lord Lisle with a combined force of more than 1,000 men. The village is famously associated with William Tyndale, who translated The Bible into English.

Broadband Survey

BT has abandoned its commitment to connect North Nibley to the Dursley exchange by fibre. This means that we will carry on getting a substandard Internet service which impacts particularly on the school and local businesses as well as local residents. The Parish Council would like to gather information on the broadband service in the area. If you would like to participate please email webmaster at northnibley.org.uk.

Beware Computer Scam

Do not be fooled by telephone callers saying they have detected a problem with your computer. Do not follow their instructions to allow them access to your computer. They are criminals.
