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 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.
