Swadlincote is a town and unparished area in South Derbyshire, about southeast of Burton-upon-Trent, northwest of Ashby-de-la-Zouch and about south of Derby. It is the largest town in South Derbyshire and is the seat of South Derbyshire District Council.Swadlincote consists of the settlements of Swadlincote itself plus the suburbs of Newhall and Midway, and the sub-village of Church Gresley. Their combined population is about 36,000. The large village of Woodville is partly contiguous with the town less than 1.5 miles to the east, and the village of Castle Gresley lies less 2 miles to the southwest. The community of Albert Village lies 1.5 miles to the south.HistorySwadlincote's toponym is derived from the Old English "Swartlings Cottas", Swartling being a man's name and cottas meaning cottages. Past forms of the toponym include Sivardingescote and Swartlincote. Swadlincote residents often shorten its name to "Swad".The Domesday Book of 1086 recorded Swadlincote as a small manor. It was part of the parish of Gresley (latterly Church Gresley) until the 19th century.
