"BROUGH and STRATTON [Ed: should be SHATTON] is a small hamlet, in Hope parish, 1 mile from that village, and 21 miles E. of Castleton. This is said to have been the birth-place of 'Peveril of the Peak', the supposed founder of the original castles at Castleton and Bolsover, and the hero in Sir Walter Scott's novel of that name. Here is an extensive lace thread manufactory, the only branch of trade of consequence in the hamlet. The population of this place is on the decline..."
[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]
Brough is sometimes listed as "Brough on Noe" since it sits alongside that river. David DUNFOLD has a photograph of the River Noe as it passes through Brough on Geo-graph, taken in May, 2006.
