Plumtree Village

old map showing plumtreePlumtree is a small village with a population of around 200, located 5 miles (8 km) south-east of Nottingham, just off the A606 between Tollerton and Keyworth. Its population has remained fairly constant during its transition from an agricultural village to a residential one.

It features a thriving church dedicated to St Mary the Virgin; a popular village hall; a pub called The Griffin Inn (which is currently closed for refurbishment and will re-open again in 2018); a premier league cricket team; and the award-winning Perkins Bar & Bistro and Carriage Hall.
