From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gamston is a civil parish and a suburb of West Bridgford, in the Rushcliffe district of Nottinghamshire, England. It is situated approximately 3 miles (5 km) south-east of Nottingham and is part of the West Bridgford postcode of NG2.

The parish of Gamston comes under Holme Pierrepont and Gamston Parish Council.[1] Gamston is also one of the wards of Rushcliffe Borough Council; the ward is larger than the parish and also contains the parish of Holme Pierrepont and the village of Edwalton. It is one of the nine wards in West Bridgford.[2] The ward elects two councillors (as of 2009, both Conservative); elections are every four years.[3]

Most of the homes in Gamston were built since the 1970s as part of the expansion of West Bridgford.[4]. The homes range from 2 bed bungalows and one bed terraces to 5 bedroomed family homes.

The border between Gamston and Edwalton exists at the junction of Beckside, Melton Gardens and Alford Road. The West Bridgford border however is somewhat harder to ascertain, as the villages have grown to the extent that they both merge into each other.

Pubs in the area include 'The Goose' and 'The Bridge'.

The centre of Gamston is based around Morrisons superstore, once Safeway; which now has a Chinese takeaway, vet surgery and pet store nearby next to the community hall.

Local secondary schools and colleges include Rushcliffe School, West Bridgford Comprehensive and South Nottingham college. Local primary schools include Pierrepont Gamston, Edwalton Primary and Abbey Road Primary School.

In 2009, Gamston emerged as the proposed site for a 45,000 seat football stadium, to host games in the 2018 World Cup and Nottingham Forest football club. Previous suggested sites included nearby Holme Pierrepont[5].
