Elston Village today
Elston is an historic Nottinghamshire farming village. Today it’s a conservation village and a thriving community just south of the historic town of Newark and Trent, off the A46.
The location offers the benefits of a tranquil rural community but within easy travelling distance to the main centres of Nottingham and Lincoln, the main trunk road of the AI, and the East Coast Mainline rail network at Newark.
Elston has a welcoming, friendly community spirit, having its own Anglican/Methodist All Saints primary school and a pre-school. There are three churches, a Village Hall, a general store; and a public house undergoing acquisition as a community pub.
Village life has much to offer with a community Sports Field, a Football Club, Allotment Society, Garden Club, WI, and The Pentagon History Society all with a full agenda of activities and events. There is also an historic Almshouse which has been fully modernised for those in need of inexpensive accommodation.
The Village Hall and Green is well used and is a meeting venue for a variety of local community groups and a place for regular evening entertainment. It can be hired for a variety of functions by anyone from the village or surrounding areas and has a licensed bar and commercial kitchen.
