  • Church Gresley is a village and former civil parish in the South Derbyshire district of Derbyshire, England. The village is very close to the town of Swadlincote, between the town and Castle Gresley. Newhall is a large commuter settlement between Swadlincote and Burton upon Trent the village lies between the A444 to its south and the A511 to its north. To its east is the market town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, very close to the M42 linking Nottingham (NE) and Birmingham (SW). Burton upon Trent is to the west with the A38 heading south to Lichfield and north for Derby and the M1. Slightly further north is the A50 linking the Stoke-on-Trent and the M6 motorway (east) one way and the M1 and Leicestershire (west) the other. It is geographically well placed for the major road network in all directions. Swadlincote is the closest town. There are regular buses linking Burton upon Trent to Ashby-de-la-Zouch (the number 9 Midland Classic or Arriva service) or Swadlincote to Burton upon Trent (the 3, 3A, 3B & 3E Arriva services) The nearest railway station is in Burton upon Trent railway station|Burton upon Trent (Midland Mainline) servicing Birmingham New Street, Nottingham, Newcastle upon Tyne, Cardiff, Hereford and Bristol. At one time there were over 60 public houses and off-licences in Newhall. One researcher has listed 37 of them.[1] In 1971, Newhall was the centre of population for Great Britain. It was first calculated as being at Rodsley in 1901 and has spread south to be at Appleby Magna by the year 2000 If you visit the www.upmystreet.co.uk or the police website and enter these areas you can find out the crime for the area.
