Sinfin in Derby

Though Sinfin is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Sedenefeld this area of Derby was mostly arable farmland until preparations for the Second World War greatly extended the Rolls-Royce aero engine factory and an Ordnance factory was built on a large site between Sinfin Lane and the main Derby to Birmingham railway line. A new housing estate was built for the workers in an area now known as "Old Sinfin. The Ordnance factory is now gone.

In the 1970's Sinfin became the focus of what at that time was a massive housing development, and now merges into the almost equally large development of Stenson Fields.

There is a largish shopping complex known as the Sinfin District Centre, dominated by ASDA but also with a Post Office, a number of small shops, takeaway, library and doctor's surgery. This also houses the Ferrers Arms. Various other small shops and takeaways are dotted in convenient small groups around Sinfin.

Sinfin has four primary schools, a pre-school day centre and a secondary school. The secondary school also offers adult education, mostly of an avocational evening class nature.

There are Church of England (St Stephen's) and Roman Catholic churches, and a Church Centre which holds services for Church of England, United Reformed and Methodist. Perhaps surprisingly, for an area whose population includes many Asians, there are no mosques or temples, the nearest are situated in Normanton.

Sinfin has an excellent daytime bus service to Derby.

The Stenson Fields pub is situated in a quiet residential area. It is modern with avery well decorated interior. They offer a range of quality beers and a very well priced menu. As a top quality local pub Stenson Fields was selected for inclusion in the Sizzling Pub Company, in early 2001. There is a children's play area at the rear of the pub, making us ideal for everyone.
