Gamston is a ward, civil parish and a suburb of West Bridgford, in the Rushcliffe district of Nottinghamshire, England. The population of the civil parish as of the 2011 census is 2,164.[1] It is situated approximately 3 miles (5 km) south-east of Nottingham and is part of the West Bridgford/Meadows/Sneinton postcode of NG2.

The parish of Gamston comes under Holme Pierrepont and Gamston Parish Council.[2] Gamston is split into Gamston North and Gamston South wards of Rushcliffe Borough Council; Gamston North includes Holme Pierrepont And Gamston Parish Council and the current Councillor is Jonathan Wheeler. Gamston South runs from Morrisons down to Edwalton. The parish and also contains the parish of Holme Pierrepont and the village of Edwalton. The population of this ward also taken at the 2011 Census was 5,337.[3] It is one of the nine wards in West Bridgford.[4]

Most of the homes in Gamston were built since the 1980s as part of the expansion of West Bridgford.[5] The homes range from 2 bed bungalows and one bed terraces to 5 bedroomed family homes.

The border between Gamston and Edwalton exists at the junction of Beckside, Melton Gardens and Alford Road. The West Bridgford border however is somewhat harder to ascertain, although the Grantham Canal provides a partial boundary in the North-West. The more recent housing estate off of Stavely Way, is however in West Bridgford.

Pubs in the area include 'The Goose' and 'The Gamston Lock'.

The modern centre of Gamston is based around Morrisons superstore, once Safeway; which now has a Chinese takeaway, vet surgery and pet store nearby, next to the community hall.

Local secondary schools and colleges include Rushcliffe School, West Bridgford Comprehensive and Central College Nottingham, although none of these are located in Gamston. Local primary schools include Pierrepont Gamston School, Edwalton Primary School in Edwalton and Abbey Road Primary School in West Bridgford.

In 2009, Gamston was proposed as the site for a 45,000 seat football stadium, to host games in the 2018 World Cup and Nottingham Forest football club, who have played at the City Ground in West Bridgford since 1898. Previous suggested sites included nearby Holme Pierrepont.[6]
