Watnall is an area of settlement in Nottinghamshire, England. It is part of Greasley civil parish, and is located one mile north of Kimberley. The village is barely separated from Nuthall. Watnall Hall was built c.1690 and demolished in 1962.[1] Even though only a village, Watnall is home to many businesses and organisations, such as British Bakeries and the Nottingham meteorological centre. There are three World War II bunkers in Watnall that served as Royal Air Force Fighter Command for the Midlands.
