Teversal

Teversal is made up of Teversal itself and Teversal Village, as well as the hamlets of Wild Hill, Stanley and Norwood

 

Teversal Village (also known as Old Teversal) is one of the most unspoilt villages in Nottinghamshire, it was designated as a Conservation Area in 1970. The village has a very 'old English character' centred around Teversal Manor, which once belonged to the Molyneux and Carnarvon families. The village is surrounded by an undulating, agricultural landscape, almost unblemished by man-made vertical structures.

The rural character is further enhanced by the retention of hedgerows, stone walls, a combination of stone and brick built properties dating back to the Twelfth Century, and traces of the villages aristocratic and agricultural past in the form of Teversal Manor and nearby farm buildings.

Twelve members of the Molyneux family are buried in the church of St. Katherine's in the village, whilst the Fifth Earl of Carnarvon is remembered for his sponsorship of the excavation of Tutankhamun's tomb.

The village is also famous for being the setting of D.H. Lawrence's novel "Lady Chatterley's Lover".

The Friends of Teversal group have produced a leaflet for new and existing residents of the village and surrounding area, which can be found here.
