MICKLEOVER FEATURE

The large residential suburb of Mickleover is located on the western outskirts of Derby. Most of the development there took place during the 20th century. But in an area close to the Uttoxeter Road are a number of interesting old buildings of such historical importance that in 1975 Conservation Area status was awarded.

The rapid expansion of industrialisation in Derby during the 18th and 19th centuries led to over-crowding in the centre of the town. This resulted in the better off starting to look further afield to build their mansions and Mickleover seemed ideal for their requirements.
