"ALLESTREY is a small parish, in the hundred of Morleston and Litchurch, about two miles N. from Derby. The parish forms part of the Duchy of Lancaster, and is within the jurisdiction of a court of pleas, for the recovery of debts under 40s., held at Tutbury every third Tuesday. The places of worship are the parish church and a chapel for Wesleyan methodists: the former, which is dedicated to St. Andrew, is an edifice of some antiquity, with a square tower; and several monuments of the Mundy family embellish the interior of the church. The living is a perpetual curacy in the patronage of J. Mundy, esq. The parish contained in 1821, 361 inhabitants, and, in 1831, 501."
[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]
The parish is on the River Derwent and is currently a part of the conurbation of Derby city. Allestree village centre was made a Conservation Area in 1991 to preserve some of the older buildings and the "look" of the village.
