A Parish Council is a statutory local authority set up under the Local Government Act 1972.
Nicholforest is said to have derived its name from a Norman baron Nicholas de Stuteville, who was one of the early owners of the Barony of Liddel, of which Nicholforest forms a part.
Nicholforest is the most northerly Parish church in England. The Church is dedicated to St Nicholas.
