Osmaston today is a suburb of Derby and the location of Osmaston Hall, which no longer exists. It is also the name of a small village in the Derbyshire Dales. Both of these places called Osmaston have been in existence since before the Domesday Book was complied (1086) as they both feature in it. In the small village of Osmaston there is a traditional village pond where you can see two of the oldest thatched cottages in the village.
