Breadsall village in Derbyshire lies between the Derby to Heanor and Derby to Alfreton roads, and has seen many changes in the last few decades. Breadsall is not quite the traffic free, quiet, rural village it once was, but with housing developments, has become part of the Derby commuter belt, and traffic calming measures have been installed. The main points of interest are the church, the old hall and Breadsall Priory, which is about a mile away from the village.
Breadsall Priory is a Jacobean house standing on the site of an Augustinian Priory, which was founded in the 13th century. Only an arch of the original building remains. The Priory is now a successful hotel with a countrywide reputation for its famous golf course. Breadsall has a thriving village school, built in 1837, a village store and a pub called the Windmill, situated in what is known as Breadsall Hill Top.
