• Our Village

    A proud history
    In the Domesday Book in AD 1086, Ruddington's population entry recorded around 250 people, but these days it's home to over 7000 people. Situated in the Borough of Rushcliffe, England, the village has a long association with the knitting industry since the 19th century, being home to the Framework Knitters Museum - one of the few places left in Britain where you can see a working Framework Knitting machine. With the heritage train and transport collection of the Great Central Railway, and the Edwardian artefacts on display at Ruddington Village Museum, we are proud to be known as the "museums village". Rushcliffe Country Park offers beautiful scenery to the south of the village, and a wonderful independent high street adds to the charm of our unique corner of rural Nottinghamshire.
