Whatton-in-the-Vale

Whatton-in-the-Vale Civil Parish was formed under the Boroughs Act in 1894, as the population was below 300 at the time the Parish was not required to have a Parish Council, instead the conduct of the Parish was governed by a parish meeting. In 1936 the population exceeded the required 300 people and the Parish Council was formed.

The ecclesiastical parish of Whatton cum Aslockton existed from the formation of Church Parishes until 1868 when Aslockton was transferred to the Parish of Scarrington. Aslockton was reunited with Whatton in 1919. Prior to it’s transfer to Scarrington Aslockton was described as a Chapelry in the greater Parish of Whatton cum Aslockton

Below are a series of articles that I have written on the History of Whatton-in-the-Vale or that I have transcribed from original documents and additionally articles contributed by other people (attributed in the text), it is very much a work in progress and further documents and photographs  will be added over time, so it is worth revisiting.
