Welcome to Spondon
Sitwell Street The Homestead Spondon was already established as an agricultural village at the time of the Domesday Book and still retains its village atmosphere.

Lying to the north-east of Derby, it became part of the Borough in 1968, and is now a suburb of the City of Derby.

Spondon has had an eventful history, having been almost completely destroyed by fire in 1340. Within 50 years the church was rebuilt and there are houses dating from the 16th century onwards. The Homestead, pictured above (right), is a Grade 1 listed building, built in 1745.

There is now a fascinating history trail with leaflet to accompany it created by the Spondon Historical Society. The 20 places of particular interest are all clearly marked with plaques.
