RECENT


 This year I have completed the detail on all the gravestones in the main churchyard, and in the more recent Parish Council Burial Ground.  There are summaries, indexes and maps.  Be prepared to download files and search on your computer.  I also have photographs which I can forward on an individual basis (no fee)

More recently Robin Hood, the hamlet on the way to Chesterfield, has occupied my attention.  The article has fascinating information on Bronze age activity, and more recently (ie 300 years ago) millstone quarries and coal mines.  A back up to your enjoyment of the area.

Just added in February 2017 are short articles on Gardom’s Edge, and how the village progressed  in the 1820s

Ann Hall features on the guest page with her article on a local highwayman – and his good luck on being transported to Australia.

And there are more family trees- a mine of information if they are the one you are looking for.
