Lenton, named for the River Leen which runs through the village, is a small area in the South of Nottingham in the East Midlands. Neighbouring Dunkirk, Radford and The Park Estate, Lenton is known to be a popular location for student housing considering its ideal proximity to the University as well as the town centre.
With this in mind, Lenton is largely a residential area, though it’s also considerably more suburban than surrounding areas, and the increase of students has also come with its share of social issues that have been largely stamped out. Such cures have come in the shape of the Lenton Community Centre in Willoughby Street which was previously a council estate. Owned by the people, given to the people and featuring something for everyone, the Centre includes many amenities such as a swimming pool and a gym.
Elsewhere, the Marcus Garvey Ballroom, named after a Jamaican political campaigner, is a West Indian Community Centre situated on Lenton Boulevard. The Centre encourages a strong sense of community as well and hosts many student and club nights for local residents.
The town has a proud tradition and honours its rich history with memorials. The most notable are the Albert Ball Memorial homes which sit next to the town’s War Memorial. Ball, a flying ace, was commended for his bravery during World War I. Furthermore, many are in agreement that Harlaxton Drive, close to The Park Estate, is where some of the best houses can be found and for those seeking something more nostalgic, Sherwin Close features some archaic properties from the 1890s.
As stated, the area is popular with University students and so Lenton is considered to be a haven for those wishing to buy-to-let.
