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.
The market place, with it’s Georgian cottages, has lots of character and is a great place to begin exploring the area. The Old Hall is a delightful timber-framed house in Orchard Street, where legend has it that Oliver Cromwell stayed, when he stormed Tutbury Castle. 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.
The area has lots of recreational space with Mickleover Golf Course, a swimming pool and The Great Northern Cycle track running through the north part of the area. The residential expansion of the area is well catered for with a great selection of facilities and shops.
