Blackfordby is a small village that lies approximately a mile northwest of Ashby de la Zouch. A footpath connects the two which is approximately a 25 minute walk. The village boasts an award winning village hall and two public houses. It has a small park which is well kept and donated to the villagers in 1894. There has been a "settlement by the black ford" since the 9th century when the Danes sailed up the River Trent and occupied much of this area. It is mentioned in the Leicestershire survey of 1125 and there has almost certainly been a church in Blackfordby since the 11th Century.
