Part of the peak district, Ticknall still showcases an unspoilt countryside setting to be explored, being host to the ‘Ticknall Walk’ which is one of the ‘5 Walks in South Derbyshire’. This traditional village has fitting amenities such as the Local Farm Shop, providing fresh fruit and vegetables, meat and eggs, all from local producers. The village also has a Post Office, public house, village hall, restaurants and a cricket pitch for summer socialising. The village primary school feeds into the outstanding ofsted rating school of St. Martins, located in the nearby village of Melbourne.
From the 16th to the 18th Centuries, Ticknall was famous across the Midlands for its thriving pottery industry. Many fragments dating back to this time can be found in and around this South Derbyshire village. The local parish church is also seen as an historic monument in Ticknall, built by the Derby Architect H. I. Stephens in 1842.
The village is located on the A514 road, approximately 2 miles away from Melbourne, therefore is within easy access of Derby, Burton-upon-Trent and the M1 motorway. The Derby Train Station is located 8 miles away for further travel.
