The village of Breaston with a population of just over 4,500, lies along the

A6005 road between Derby and Nottingham and the north south roads link

the village to Risley and Sawley. Derby is just 8 miles to the west and

Nottingham 10 miles to the east. The M1 junction 25 is just a mile away and

the nearest mainline station is Long Eaton which is 2 miles from the village.

The surrounding countryside is much valued by the community and can be

reached within minutes by the good network of pathways radiating from the


In the village square, know as the Green, with its 1 hour free parking, has two

busy convenience stores, a post office and family butcher. Nearby are three

public houses, The Chequers, The Bull and The Navigation. Also close by is a

farm shop and Lanes Garden Centre Open Farm.

The village has two churches, again next to the village square, the Breaston

St Michaels Church and Breaston Methodist Church.

For the sporting enthusiast there are a youth football teams on a Saturday

and a Sunday morning team who play in the Long Eaton Premier league ,

who both play on Breaston Park The village also has is own Breaston Cricket

Club who were formed in 1836 and they play their home fixtures on the

Solders and Sailor Park on Risley Lane.

One of the village highlights of year is its May Day Gala on Duffield Close;

which attracts great support from the residents and many regular visitors.

Duffield Close also has regular brass bands performing during the summer

months and a sensory garden.

Family homes in Breaston are much sought after with a wide variety of homes

available and many residents making their family home from one generation

to the next. Firfield Primary School has an excellent reputation for giving the

youngsters a good sound early education. There are three nearby secondary

schools, with Friesland at Sandiacre, Long Eaton School and Wilsthorpe

School again in Long Eaton. All three are within 2 miles of Breaston.

Trent Lock and the Sawley Marina are about 3 miles to the south and this is

where several canals and waterways converge and proves to be a popular

visitor attraction.

There are very regular Indigo Trent Barton buses to both Derby and

Nottingham. The East Midlands Airport is again within easy access and the

Nottingham Express Tram Toton terminus is again close by with easy access

via the A52

Breaston has a vision to preserve and enhance the sense of community,

whilst retaining village character for future generations.

As you may have read the government is cutting back on the upgrades to the railway system. One casualty is Midland Mainline which runs from St Pancreas through to Sheffield via Loughborough, Leicester and East Midlands Parkway. This is of vital importance to the economy of the East Midlands. The planned electrification is being ‘paused’.

HS2 (High Speed 2) is the High Speed railway planned between London, Manchester and Leeds. The line between Birmingham and Leeds part of the overall project is due to be completed in 2033. With the delays just announced there must be doubts as to the timing of this project. However at this present time the plans are for the line to go through the west of the Nottingham area. The likely site of the station will be at Toton Sidings. This depot is bordered by Long Eaton, Sandiacre and Toton.

If buying a house or flat near to the proposed line we strongly recommend an HS2 search (£18.00) to see whether or not the property will be affected.

Legal Aid and Criminal Cuts –

Many of you will have followed the on going disputes between lawyers and the government over criminal legal aid cuts. This firm no longer carries out criminal work. The criminal department transferred to VHS Fletchers Solicitors in August 2014.

The dispute is over two issues. The first issue is cuts in rates of 8.75% due in July 2015. The second issue is probably more serious for criminal firms. This is the proposal to drastically limit Duty Solicitor Contracts to certain firms in January 2016. Most criminal firms who do not obtain a contract will find it difficult to survive if this scheme comes in. Substantial amounts of work are received by criminal solicitors through the duty solicitor scheme.
