Description and Travel

"CLOWN, a village and parish, in the same hundred as Whitwell, is about three miles N.W. from that village, two S.S.E. from Barlhorough, and three and a half N. from Bolsover. In the neighbourhood of the village coal and lime-stone are obtained, and there is a small manufactory for sail-cloth; but the inhabitants are chiefly employed in agricultural labours. There is a chalybeate spring, called Shuttlewood Spa, in this parish; and a piece of water, called Harlesthorpe Dam, covering about four acres."

[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]

The parish covers 1,922 acres and includes the hamlets of Damsbrook, Hickin Wood and Halsthorpe (or Harlesthorpe). The village of Clowne has a website.
