photographer Andy Savage. I was born in Derby,
Derbyshire, England and although I may not be that old I
have witnessed a lot of changes to Derby over the years.
By using my photographic skills, Website design
experience and a lot of research I have created what I
think you will agree is a very informative website about
my city. It features exclusive information and
photographs that you will not find anywhere else.
photographs you will see are all taken using a digital
camera (unless otherwise specified). Most of the images
are larger than you will see on most websites yet they
still load in very quickly. At the end of the day this
site is for the normal 56K modem user, if you
are lucky enough to have an ADSL/Cable connection then
you may like to view my Broadband
Enhanced section which has been designed for
people with Broadband Internet connections.

this site which you feel others may like to read then
please let me know, I can never know each village in as
much detail as the people that live in them.

is the only city in England to be given its name by the
Danes. If it weren't for the Vikings invading in AD873
the name would have been Northworthy . Northworthy was
captured by the Vikings to become part of Danelaw and
renamed Deoraby, or place of the deer to signify
the great deer-herds that roamed the Derwent valley.
This is why the Derby crest is a buck-in-the-park, This
crest can be seen all over the buildings of Derby.
The Saxons recaptured Deoraby in AD917 but the Danish
name remained. No one knows for sure when or why the
name changed to Derby (Pronounced 'Dar-bee').
those people that do not know Derby's location, You will
find a Location maps link on the left side of this page.
a lot of Derby's history has been lost forever but a
wide variety of it remains for us to enjoy today. This
website will allow you to see the many wonderful
architectural achievements which Derby has on show.
Derby website is by no means a substitute for getting
out of your chair and going to have a look at these
places for your self, but if you would like to spend
some time here then it will be time well spent. The
historical information detailed here is drawn from
either my own knowledge or collected from varying
sources such as information plaques, leaflets, books and
website is primarily aimed at three different categories
of people, firstly those people in other countries that
wish to see what England is like. Secondly for people that
used to live in Derbyshire but have now moved to another
area of England or another country completely.
finally for those people in Derby that like to see areas
they might not have been before or may not even know
about and to let you know historical information about
the places and buildings.
Derby has changed considerably in the last few years, So
if it has been some time since you visited or perhaps
you now live in another country I recommend you have a
look at my photographs.
this site you will be able to look at the photographs I
have taken while out and about in Derbyshire,
Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. Because
I was born and raised in Derby most of the photographs and
historical information will be focused on Derby but the
other areas are still worth featuring.
the years I intend to cover every village in Derbyshire
but this may take a lifetime. If you have any
suggestions of places to feature, please leave them in
the Forums area HERE
