Costock is a village and civil parish in the Rushcliffe district of Nottinghamshire, England.[1][2] The population of the civil parish at the 2011 Census was 621.[3] It was estimated at 664 in 1998.[4] Although in Nottinghamshire, Costock's closest town is Loughborough in Leicestershire.

Amenities

Costock has a Church of England primary school. St Giles's Church, built in 1350, stands back from the main street of the village. The Anglican Community of the Holy Cross has had a small convent at Highfields, Cotham, since 2011.

Transport

Costock lies next to the main A60, Nottingham to Loughborough road.

The No. 9 bus service between Nottingham and Loughborough operates at least once an hour, seven days a week. It is operated by Kinchbus.[5] East Midlands Airport lies 10 miles away.

18th-century visitor

The German traveller K. P. Moritz stayed the night while on a walking tour of England in 1782: "There were three inns adjacent to each other in Costock, which, to judge by their exteriors, were dens of the most abject poverty. At the one where I stayed only the landlady was at home.... During the evening I felt a kind of fever, slept disturbed that night and lay in bed very long the next morning until my landlady woke me up, saying she was getting worried on my account. I decided to travel on beyond Leicester by coach."[6]
