Bramcote, five miles west of Nottingham city, is a settlement of Nottinghamshire, England. Bramcote was once recognised individually as a village, but has more recently been made a suburb of Greater Nottingham, after it was absorbed by Nottingham’s growing urban sprawl. Bramcote is similar to the typical suburbs around Nottingham, with its own schools and churches, but one area where it has particular distinction is in its parks and open areas.
The area of Nottingham was settled as far back as Saxon times in England. In times since the industrial revolution, Nottingham has always been known as an economic power of sorts within England. Famous initially for its textiles and lace making, and later bicycle production and tobacco industries. Today, Nottingham is a metropolis with a varied economy including technology, sciences, manufacturing, finance and commerce,
Nottingham is the second largest economy in England behind London, and the fourth largest in the entire United Kingdom. Because of prosperity and economic growth, Greater Nottingham has expanded far past the city borders, now covering an area of over 100 square miles, with almost one million people living inside the urban area.
While typical to most Nottingham suburbs in almost every way, Bramcote differentiates itself with its use of open areas for park development.
Bramcote is one of the few suburbs within Nottingham to have a park with the distinction of holding a Green Flag Award. This park, Bramcote Hills Park, is situated near to the centre of Bramcote, and features an extensive wooded area. Offering a balance of relaxation and leisure, the park is also known for having easy access for disabled persons. With views of the nearby countryside, the park is used daily by those wanting to escape from the hustle and enjoy nature. For more active park-goers there’s even a bike trail, and for the busy parents looking for a breather, there’s a children’s playground too.
Bramcote is also adjacent to the Woolaton Hall and Deer Park, a popular park in Nottingham.
Accessible by major roads and public transport, Bramcote is a quiet suburb that offers a comfortable lifestyle, while still being close to the centre of Nottingham.
