Derby, North West
Derby taken from the main road
If you are driving along the R30 it would be very easy to miss the village of Derby if it wasn't for the Dutch Reformed Church spire sticking out of the trees.
The village is surrounded by good agricultural land and there is a set of grain silos in the town.
The town was named after Lord Derby who was the British Secretary of State.
