DESCRIPTION

The village of Osmaston, lying just over 2 miles south of Ashbourne, was formerly a chapelry of Brailsford. The church, dating from the 15th century and which replaced one of a much earlier date, was itself demolished and replaced by the present church in 1845. The registers which date from 1606 have been deposited at the County Record Office in Matlock and are available for research on film. This picturesque village, situated just off the main Derby to Ashbourne road, consists mainly of a single village street, lined with a few houses and thatched cottages, surrounded by a number of farm-steads dotted over the landscape. A little distant from the village, within its own extensive parkland and overlooking a large lake, stood the now demolished Osmaston Manor. The manor was built in the mid. 1800's by Francis Wright who provided money for the building of the present church and the village school. Francis Wright provided work on his estate for the people of the village, in fact many of the cottages were built by him to house his employees. Even today, the village is privately owned by the Walker-Okeover family who purchased the estate in the late 1800's.
