North Nibley

Local Interest


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 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.

Road Closures

Barden Networks will be closing Warren/Warend Hill from 11th Sept to 22nd Sept during the hours of 9:30-15:30 on behalf of Openreach. This is presumably to fix problems with the ducts taking the telephone cables. It is possible that they may also be installing the fibre to cabinet 1 at the same time. The fibre has to be blown through ducting from the Dursley exchange to cabinet 1 at the bottom of Warren/Warend Hill. No doubt problems will be encountered on the way but there is no planned closure of the road up to Stinchcombe Hill from Dursley nor from there to the top of Warren/Warend Hill. Matt Lloyd of BT may be at the next PC meeting to explain progress (or lack of).
