"BARLBOROUGH is a parish (having no dependent township) in the same hundred as Eckington, about three miles S.S.E. therefrom, nearly eight N.E. from Chesterfield, and about three W. from the village of Whitwell. In the neighbourhood are extensive collieries and mines of iron-stone; and the turnpike roads from Chesterfield to Worksop, and from Sheffield to Mansfield, cross, near the Village, at right angles."
[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]
This parish lies 160 miles north of London and 11 miles south-east of Sheffield. It is divided from Yorkshire by a small rivulet. There is more information at Derbyshire Heritage.
