Lambley is a small village near Nottingham, England and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 by the name of Lambeleia. One of its most famous "children" was Lord Ralph Cromwell. Born in the village in 1394, he became the Lord Treasurer of England to Henry VI, and was responsible for submitting the first budget to Parliament.
It is a pretty village, mostly untouched by urbanisation, since it is situated in the green belt. Due in part to its close commuting distance to Nottingham (approx 6 miles) houses in the village have become high priced real estate.
At the end of Year 6, most pupils at Lambley County Primary School transfer to the Colonel Frank Seely School in Calverton for their secondary education.
Lambley was one of the worst affected areas during the heavy flooding that hit England in June 2007.
