A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Nuthall from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"NUTHALL, a village and a parish in Basford [registration] district, Notts. The village stands 2 miles W of Bulwell [railway] station, and 4½ N W by N of Nottingham; and has a post-office under Nottingham. The parish contains also the hamlets of Awsworth, Hempshill, and Cinder-Hill; and includes the tract of Shilo, formerly extra-parochial. Acres: 1,644. Real property: £4,066; of which £1,000 are in mines. Population in 1851: 685; in 1861: 842. Houses: 180. The increase of population arose from the opening of a colliery and of iron-stone quarries. The property is subdivided. The manor of Nuthall belongs to R Holden, Esq; and that of Awsworth to the Earl of Stamford. Nuthall Temple, the seat of R. Holden, Esq., is modelled after a celebrated Italian villa, and stands in a fine park. An extensive colliery and a stone quarry are at Cinder-Hill. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Lincoln. Value: £350. Patron: R. Holden, Esq. The church is old, was repaired in 1860, and has a tower. The [perpetual] curacy of Awsworth is a separate benefice. A parochial school is in Nuthall; and a Primitive Methodist chapel and a school-charity of £5 are in Awsworth.

Awsworth was made into a separate parish in 1894; Hempshill was part of Bulwell parish.
