The village is located just off Ryknild Street, otherwise known as the A38, between Derby and Stretton, Burton upon Trent. It is historically a farming community. Due to a historical legal situation, no alcohol is allowed to be sold in the village and hence there is no village pub.
In Fishpond Lane there is a row of tenants' cottages, some of which have their windows bricked up, dating back to the days of window-tax.
The village does not have a war memorial in the normal sense but it has a memorial hall which doubles as the village school and as a community hall.
After the closure of Derby's Burnaston airport, a small airfield was established near to Egginton which houses a community of light aircraft owners, aero club and supporting aircraft maintenance firms.
