About Hatton

Hatton, a quaint village and civil parish nestled in South Derbyshire, England, lies 5 miles north of Burton upon Trent, 10 miles southwest of Derby, and 24 miles southeast of Stoke-on-Trent. As of the 2021 census, Hatton's population was recorded at 2,564. Geographically, it sits about half a mile north of Tutbury, Staffordshire which it shares a border, with the River Dove marking the boundary and a listed bridge linking the two villages. The village enjoys proximity to the A50 road, linking the M1 and M6. Originally traversing Hatton's northern edge, the A50 was bypassed in May 1995 by the Hatton, Hilton, and Foston Bypass, now designated as the A511. Tutbury & Hatton railway station, serving the Nottingham to Crewe line, reopened in the 1980s after being closed during the Beeching cuts. Local bus services by Diamond East Midlands and Trentbarton connect Hatton with nearby towns. The village boasts a network of footpaths and bridleways, particularly in its northern part, providing connections to neighboring villages. Environmental features include heathland and pasture, contrasting with the residential and commercial areas. The local economy includes Nestlé Tutbury, a major employer producing the Dolce Gusto range and Nescafé whilst various shops and food outlets contribute to the village's charm. Historically, Hatton is mentioned in the Domesday Book, with its parish church dedicated to All Saints. The population, estimated at around 500 in 1880, has since quintupled. Notable historical residents include John Berry, creator of the Esso tiger and Ladybird Books, Roger Davies, an ex-Derby County footballer, and Jody Bunting, a fitness expert from Channel 4's former morning show The Big Breakfast. Administratively, Hatton falls under South Derbyshire District Council and Derbyshire County Council.
