Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835:
"CALVER is a hamlet, in the parish of Bakewell; one mile E. S.E. from Stoney Middleton, situate upon the river Derwent. It contains a considerable cotton mill, and the neighbourhood abounds with lime-stone. The population, by the parliamentary returns for 1831, amounted to 616."
The A623 trunk road between Manchester and Chesterfield runs through the village. You might enjoy Barbara Whiteman's photographs of Calver.
