Nuthall is a village located in Nottinghamshire, England, neighbouring Kimberley, Watnall, Cinderhill and Basford. It is part of the Borough of Broxtowe.

Nuthall is split into two areas, Old Nuthall, which lies between the Nuthall Island roundabout and Kimberley, and New Nuthall, which lies between Bells Lane and Nuthall Island. New Nuthall also includes the Mornington Crescent Estate, a late 1980s/early 1990s exclusive development which borders Strelley and the Hempshill Vale estate. New Nuthall also borders Broxtowe Country Park and a bypass road (Woodhouse Way).

In comparison to New Nuthall, the houses in Old Nuthall tend to be smaller and less spread out.[1] Old Nuthall is focused on the main roads of Nottingham Road, Kimberley Road and Watnall Road. It also includes the Larkfields estate, a council estate with a large proportion of privately owned homes. These council homes are considerably smaller than other homes found in the Monington Crescent Estate and old nuthall[2]

New Nuthall is largely detached 1960s/1970s houses situated on the Cedarlands/Horsendale estate. New Nuthall also includes the suburban housing estate known as Mornington/Assarts Farm. The estate has a popular school, a doctors surgery and shop complex as well as a pub/restaurant, an Indian restaurant, making the estate largely self-contained. The Mornington Crescent Estate is widely considered the most exclusive and best area in Nottingham.[3]

Nuthall Temple (now demolished) was the stately home of the Holden family. Papers of the Holden family are held at the department of Manuscripts and Special Collections, The University of Nottingham.

The parish church is dedicated to St Patrick.
