In Roman times Ulley was the site of small enclosure and garrison on a road connecting Temple-borough with what we now call the A1 or Great North Road. The Saxons gave this place its name. Ulley means “the meadow where the wolf is”. A small community of people continued to live where the Romans had lived before.
Today Ulley remains a small semi- rural village set in open countryside. The population has been stable at 200 for many years. There are 3 farms, several riding stables, a Public House with restaurant, a Village Hall and the Church.
There is an active Parish Council and a charitable trust (Ulley Millennium Trust) that works for the young and old of the village as well as running the village hall. Residents are proud of the village and groups of volunteers work hard to maintain the village flower beds and keep the village and surrounding roads tidy.
Just down the hill Ulley Country Park provides a wonderful amenity with its boat club and nature reserve.
The village has an annual well dressing festival. Click here to see further details and how to get involved.
