Description and Travel

"DENBY is a parish (having no dependent township) in the same hundred as Butterley, between two and three miles S. from Ripley, and about 8 N.E. from Derby. Coal and iron-works, and a pottery are in the parish. The habitations are thinly scattered to a considerable distance around the church, which is an ancient building, dedicated to St. Mary. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the gift of the Earl of Chesterfield. The parish contained, at the last census (1831) 1,272 inhabitants."

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

If you are planning a visit, the parish has its own Visitors' Centre to welcome and assist you. CAUTION: The site is intended to sell you pottery.
