Long Clawson is a little community lying behind the hills at the western end of the Vale of Belvoir, just six miles from Melton Mowbray and thirteen miles from Nottingham.
Long Clawson was, and continues to be, mostly an agriculture town. Originally, there were 14 farms strewn throughout the length of the hamlet, their fields stretching up into the hills and down to the Smite River.
In recent years, this community, like many others, has experienced a decrease in the number of companies. It used to have five pubs, a number of businesses and merchants, and its own police station, but currently it just has the Crown and Plough bar and a few shops. As a consequence of the rising population, the neighborhood is flourishing and expanding. In the early twenty-first century, 100 new residences were erected, and the primary school's student population was doubled.
