Edingley is a village in Nottinghamshire, England. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 390.[1] It is located 3 miles north-west of Southwell.

The parish church of St Giles is Norman, almost completely rebuilt in 1890.[2]

It is a largely agricultural parish with two local businesses- Highfields→ nursing home and Forrest Feeds. Its allotments are historic and the plot originally held the poor house and is the same plot as in the enclosure act of 1781 and formally surveyed in 1899.[3]

The village school was built in 1911-12 and closed in the 1960s. The private Edgehill school took over the building and extended northwards with a series of temporary buildings. This closed in 1996. The same building, known as the Old Schoolroom, is now the village community hall.
