Greasley Nottinghamshire by oldjosh

Greasley Nottinghamshire

is a “lost” village, it is mentioned in the Doomsday Book which includes reference to a church, a priest and woodland pasture.
The village, apart from the church was destroyed by the Earl of Rutland so he could have a better view.
St Mary’s parish church, built in the Mid-15th century is a Grade II listed building, The parish include the villages of Moorgreen and Newthorpe which I visited on the same walk and Glitbrook whose sign I have previously posted.
The remains of Greasley Castle a medieval fortified manor house have been incorporated into some farm buildings
