About The Parish
With 108 homes in the village core and another 34 in the outlying hamlets, the adult population is currently around 280. This is not a lot different to the population of 241 recorded in 1901.
History of Kings Clipstone
Kings Clipstone is recorded in the Doomsday book as Clipstone. It was Edward I who bestowed the Kingly part of its name after Parliament was held at the Palace in 1290.
The Clipstone Lordship was originally a separate area of Edwinstowe Parish. It became a parish in its own right after the development in the 1920s of Clipstone Village(New Clipstone) to house miners for the new pit. In April 2011 two new parishes were created with the more rural parts of the parish forming the new Kings Clipstone Council.
