"GRINDLOW, a township in the parish of Hope, hundred of High Peak, county Derby, 2 miles N.E. of Tideswell."
[Description(s) from The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) Transcribed by Colin HINSON ©2003]
This was a small hamlet near Hope in Derbyshire. It saw a decline in its fortune (and population) when mining gave out around 1800.
And John Marius WILSON's "Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales", 1870-72 tells us:
GRINDLOW, a township in Hope parish, Derby; 2¼ miles ENE of Tideswell. Real property, £146. Pop., 75. house, 14.
