"ETWALL is a pleasant village, in the township of Etwall and Bearward-Cote, in the parish of Etwall, and hundred of Appletree, 6 miles W.S.W. from Derby, situate on the road leading from that town to Uttoxeter, in Staffordshire. This village is the residence of several genteel families, but is destitute of manufactures, and its local trade is very unimportant."
[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]
Today, Etwall is 128 miles north of London, and sitting just north of the A50, west of the intersection with the A38. Visit the Etwall Village website for more information.
