Historically the town was dominated by the 12th century manor house, eventually becoming a 15th century castle belonging to the Hastings family. Today this is a thriving community on the north side of the A42 dual carriageway with excellent road links south west via the M42 to Birmingham and Birmingham International Airport, or north-east to the M1 motorway corridor with East Midland conurbations beyond and Nottingham East Midlands Airport at Castle Donington.
The town boasts a wealth of main brand high street names including Boots and WH Smith and associated banks, building societies and boutique shops offering a selection of shopping opportunities. Located centrally to the town is a leisure centre with both indoor and outdoor lido, popular schooling including four primary schools, middle school and Ashby School with associated sixth form and boarding facilities. Elsewhere the town enjoys local supermarkets and associated stores including a recently completed M&S Simply Food Store.
