Osmaston is a small village in the Derbyshire Dales in the county of Derbyshire in England.

Located two and a half miles south of Ashbourne, Osmaston is an archetypal English village with thatched cottages and a village pond.

History

The village is mentioned in the Domesday Book under the name Osmundestone; the parish was originally named Whitestone.

The village church - St. Martin's - dates from 1606, although the present building was constructed in 1843. The building was previously a wickerwork construction.

Points of interest

The Winter Garden, Osmaston Manor, just before demolition

The war memorial situated at the side of the road, near the church, commemorates those lost in the First World War.[1]

The only pub in the village is 'The Shoulder of Mutton'. There is also a village hall and a primary school.

Osmaston Manor was designed by Henry Isaac Stevens for Francis Wright of the Butterley Iron Company and completed in 1849. The house was demolished in 1964.[2] The estate was sold in 1988 to Sir Ian Walker's family, who had the house demolished when they moved to Okeover and adopted the Okeover name. The Walker-Okeovers still own the land; the estate hosts popular horse trials and the Ashbourne Shire Horse Show.[2] The terraces of the house's gardens are still apparent today.
