Old Denaby is a civil parish with a population of approximately 330 residents and the first mention of the village of Old Denaby is in the Great Domesday Book.
Old Denaby Wetlands, along with Hanging Wood, Peas Hill Plantation and Denaby Woods (better known as Bluebell Woods) are all designated as Local Wildlife sites. Part of Denaby Woods is classed as Ancient Woodland.
The Parish Council have provided a defibrillator for emergency use- housed in our red 'phone box on Denaby Lane- at the top of Ferry Boat Lane. The Council is hoping to provide training session in the village for residents to learn how to use this. In the meantime, the following videos give you more information about defibrillators and how to use them: What
