Description and Travel

"HILTON is a small village and township, in the parish of Marston-upon-Dove, in the same hundred as Etwall, about 2 miles W. from that village. A school-house was erected here about 1655, by Arthur and Thomas. Harrison, and in 1781 the commissioners of enclosures allotted land for the support of a schoolmaster, for teaching the poor children of the parish. The inhabitants are chiefly employed in agriculture: by the returns for 1831, the number in the parish amounted to 985, of which 651 were returned for the township."

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

Hilton Brook runs down the western side of the village. Part of the brook's course has been moved to the west to bypass the village.

Derby Airfield lies just south of the village.

M. J. RICHARDSON has a photograph of the 'Black Magic' shop at the Derby Airfield on Geo-graph, taken in October, 2012.
