Arnold Nottinghamshire

Arnold Nottinghamshire Arnold is a market town north of Nottingham with an inhabitancy of about 40,000. It is in Gedling Borough and is the largest town in the district.

Arnold has a long and ancient history dating back to the late bronze age. The name comes from the Saxon Ernehale and is usually translated to 'the place of eagles' but probably actually meant 'place of herons'.

It suffered a Viking attack in the Ninth Century and gets a mention in the Doomsday Book as having a population of 150. It suffered the plague in the Fifteenth Century, a Luddite's riot in the Eighteenth and industrialisation in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries.

Today it is a residential and shopping area with a decent variety of shops and cafes. It is particularly good for charity shops making it a good place to pick up a bargain.
