Entering Thorpe in the Glebe

Thorpe in the Glebe is an ancient parish and abandoned village in the Rushcliffe wapentake of Nottinghamshire, to the south of Wysall on the Leicestershire border. It was sometimes called Thorpe in the Cottes or Thorpe Bochart. Tradition says, that this place was destroyed either at the Battle of Willoughby Field, or by the hailstorm noticed at Stanton-on-the-Wolds.[1]

The village was deserted by 1535, with the last religious service conducted here in 1824. The site of the church is now just a mound.
