Why move to Swadlincote?

Swadlincote is a mining town set in the National Forest, which has benefited from re-development of new homes. These were built by not only the major building companies but also by independent builders, who offer individual properties. Living in Swadlincote, you are not only close to large towns like Burton-on-Trent and cities such as Derby and Leicester, but also within a very short drive of open country side in the National Forest. There are a selection of good primary and secondary schools, road links, shops, restaurants and now a cinema. What more could you want!



Swadlincote is a relatively new town that first became established in the early 19th century. The town has industrial beginnings and historical connections with the coal mining, pottery and brick-making industries, which were later replaced in the 20th century by engineering and manufacturing businesses.

Swadlincote is best know for it's pottery heritage and the history of this can be found in Sharpe's Pottery. Sharpe's is 19th century pottery, sensitively converted into a tranquil retreat for exploring local history and culture by day, enlivened by concerts in the kiln at night. Swadlincote Tourist Information Centre is also on site. Swadlincote's most famous residents were Jack Bodell, former British Heavyweight Champion, born 11 August 1940. Ben Warren (1879–1917), England international footballer, born in Newhall.
