Halam is a village and civil parish in the Newark and Sherwood district of Nottinghamshire, England, with a population of 372 in 2001, increasing to 426 at the 2011 Census.[2] It is located to the west of Southwell.[3]

The parish church, which was built in the 11th–12th centuries, is dedicated to St Michael the Archangel.[4] At the north end of the village is an 18th-century water mill, three storeys with a lean-to wheelhouse and adjoining cottage.[5] There is a public house called the Waggon & Horses, which is the first carbon-neutral pub in the United Kingdom and home of the Nottinghamshire Pie, a dish created by chef Roy Wood. The school is called Halam Church of England Primary School.
