Higham

images

Higham is a Conservation Area where many of the properties are several centuries old.  It was a Roman settlement on the Ryknield Way – now the Belper Road – and in mediaeval times enjoyed the right to hold a market.

The much restored market cross still dominates the only street and property values reflect the beauty and setting of the village.
