Lying on the River Trent near Nottingham, Radcliffe has a population of about 8,000 people. The local church of St Mary’s dates to at least the 13th century and contains interesting monumental brasses and a number of features from the time of Edward 111.

The National Watersports Centre is close by while the neighbouring village of Stoke Bardolph witnessed Henry VII’s defeat of an army led by the pretender to the throne, Lambert Simnel, during the War of the Roses in 1487. Simnel was later given a job – in the royal kitchens.
