North Nibley is a village in Gloucestershire, England about 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) northwest of Wotton-under-Edge.

The village is commonly known as Nibley, but the official name distinguishes it from the village of Nibley, just outside Yate, about 10 miles (16 km) away in South Gloucestershire. Nibley Green is an associated hamlet to the northwest of North Nibley.

The village is the probable birthplace of William Tyndale who was responsible for translating the New Testament into English, for which he was later sentenced to death and burned at the stake in Vilvoorde, Flanders [modern-day Belgium]. Nibley House, next to the church, was the home of John Smyth (1567–1641), steward of the Berkeley Estates and historian of the early settlement of Virginia.
