The local area guide to living in Bingham

Located 9 miles east of Nottingham, the town of Bingham has proudly stood for over a millennium, today serving as the central hub of the area. Occupying a region first visited by humans over 250,000 years ago, the earliest records of Bingham stretch back to the 9th century. The local church, St. Mary and All Saints Parish, has stood since the 1300s, with some indication of a previous church having been on the site since the 1100s.

Throughout its long history, Bingham has subsided largely via agriculture, acquiring a market charter in 1314 and going on to become a central market for the area. Though the market did at one point close, it was reopened several decades ago, and now serves the town as it did in the centuries before.

Information about the local residents

Today, the town is on the rise, with numerous houses having been built, along with a local industrial park serving 40 businesses. Many residents choose Bingham due to its proximity to nearby Nottingham, leading many to label Bingham a dormitory town. However, this sells the town rather short, as it has been recognised as one of the finest places to live in England. Family Investment crowned Bingham as its 2013 choice of ‘best town in England and Wales to raise a family’, due to affordable housing, low crime rates and excellent schooling. The town is a simple, quiet, place to raise a family or buy a home, offering easy access to nearby towns and cities, as well as a charming small town feel.

Most residents of the town, if not operating one of the local shops, are professionals in their thirties and forties, either working at the business park or within Nottingham. House ownerships rates are high for the area, largely due to its highly competitive prices, attracting many families to the region who wish to settle down and find a place to raise their children. The town itself hosts approximately 9,000 residents, with several hundred more expected to join as new houses are built. And the community itself inviting more investment and amenities to deal with the influx of young families and professionals.

Nearby schools

The town hosts several schools, all of which are well rated by Ofsted and residents alike. Both the infant and junior schools of the town bear the moniker Robert Miles and the Carnarvon Primary School also serves the town. Several pre-school and day care facilities also exist.

The Toot Hill Comprehensive School is well renowned, having been rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, with 77% of GCSE takers scoring results within the range of A* to C in 2013. The Central College of Nottingham maintains a small campus in the town, with some adult education, particularly in computing, available. The nearby city of Nottingham further offers various colleges and universities for tertiary education needs.

Getting around

The Bingham train station sits on the Nottingham – Skegness line, whilst bus services leave regularly to the surrounding towns and city of Nottingham. The town also sits at the intersection of the A46 and A52, with the A1 20 minutes away, and the M1 a mere 30 minutes away. Its closest airport, the East Midlands Airport, a short journey away, allows easy access to the rest of the UK and Europe at large.

Local shops

In keeping with its agricultural past, many farm shops can be found in the town, offering high-quality local produce. A weekly open air market, showcasing everything from crafts to clothes and produce, is held in the old market place every Thursday. A monthly farmers market, attracting locals and residents from miles around, occurs every third Saturday of the month.

Two supermarkets also serve the town, as well as several shopping centres, a library, health centre and a leisure centre. If you seek further amenities, a plethora of facilities can be found in nearby Nottingham.
