Arnold started out as an isolated community, the road from Nottingham stopped at the top of the village, and the people led quiet rural lives. Then came the agricultural and industrial revolutions, and improved transport links, and everything started to change. Mills were founded and large factories in the Arnold Daybrook area were established to make beer and do laundry. A railway came to Daybrook, and trams and buses and better roads started to open up the growing town until it became the commuter suburb that it is today.
