• Photos of Doveridge, Derbyshire
Doveridge is a small village and parish, 17 miles west from Derby, and about 2 S. E. from Uttoxeter. It is located on the west side of Derbyshire on the border with Staffordshire, The river Dove being the county border.

The Doomsday book tells that Doveridge boasted, amongst other things, a parish church and a water mill. Dropping down from the church, a footpath passes the site of the old water mill, demolished in the 1970s. Approaching St Cuthbert's by the main path you enter a 'tunnel' of branches formed by an ancient yew tree, reputed to be some 1200 years old. According to legend, Robin Hood was betrothed to his lady under its boughs.

The village of Doveridge used to be the main route for traffic going from Uttoxeter to Sudbury, The A50 bypass has allowed the village to return to a quiet place again. To the north west of the village is Dove bridge, which now carries the A50 across the river Dove. The local pub is called the Cavendish Arms and is on Derby road.
