Mickleover, the same as Littleover, is a great sprawl of suburban houses. The part known as the village is the shopping area on Uttoxeter Road, about 2 miles out of Derby. These days it is dominated by the Tesco supermarket, but the Old Market Place still remains and The Green, The Hollow and Orchard St. still give the area around The Square, lots of character.
There are several pubs in the village including, the Mason Arms, built in 1724 and the Nags Head opened in 1929. There is also the Vine, situated next to the old smithy. It had a vine growing along its wall and over its doorway.
