Welcome to the Dingley Village Website
Dingley is a small village, in the borough of Kettering, on the borders of Northamptonshire and Leicestershire and is surrounded by beautiful countryside with stunning views in all directions across the adjacent valleys. The village is a scattered community, which means there is no real village centre and the dwellings are placed in all parts of the parish. It is a friendly community with a range of activities that take place and has a population of around 150.
Dingley is located on a hill above the Welland Valley over looking the town of Market Harborough which is three miles away. It is probably best known for the Dingley Point to Point Races that take place three times during the year and the very lovely Dingley Hall, part of which dates back to 1135.
Dingley is a community that was recorded in the Doomsday Book in 1086 but there has been a settlement here for much longer than that as Celtic, Roman and Saxon remains have been found. The village consists of around 100 houses scattered throughout the Parish in three main clusters; Dingley, which consists of the houses along the lower A427 and those in Church Lane; Top Dingley which is higher up the A427 towards Corby and the houses in Braybrooke Road; and Nether Dingley, a row of houses along Dingley Lane in the valley below Dingley Park on the road to Sutton Bassett. As well as these clusters, there are some individual houses at the bottom of Dingley Hill. The village no longer has a Village shop, pub or a post office, although at one time it had all three, and the Village Hall is now the focal point for the community.
