The Pursgloves of Allestree - [ALLE]

Allestree is now a suburb of the City of Derby.  Situated on the A6, it lies between the Amber Valley and the Erewash Valley.  Before the Norman conquest, this was a small hamlet with a few dwellings.  In the 12th century the land was owned by the Abbey of St Mary.  Much of the land was leased back to wealthy farmers for agricultural use.

This is now a predominantly residential area in the north of the City.
