Location -

The village of Findern, famous for its mention in the Domesday Book for being held by Burton Abbey as an outlier of Mickleover. Sir Geoffrey de Fynderne, the principal land owner throughout history, left the village to join the Crusades and brought back the 'Findern Flower, which now, in the UK, only grows in the village and has become the local emblem.

Prior to the development of transport, the village was self-supporting and it was here, in 1740, that Jedediah Strutt came as an apprentice wheelwright. Later he went on to set up the mills and their communities at Belper and Milford, which now form an integral part of the Derwent Valley World Heritage Site.

Findern amenities include primary school, village green, shop, hairdressers, pleasant walks in surrounding countryside and easy access to the impressive new Mercia Marina located on the outskirts of neighbouring Willington. Findern is well known for being in the catchment area for the noted John Port School located in the village of Etwall. It is well located for ease of access to the A38, A50 leading to the M1 motorway.
