Description and Travel

"LITTLE EATON is a chapelry and village, in that part of the parish of St. Alkmund which is in the hundred of Morleston and Litchurch, rather more than one mile from Duffield. Here are many valuable collieries and productive stone quarries; bleaching grounds, belonging to Messrs. Smith & Sons, and machine-paper works of Messrs. Tempest & Son; there are, besides, malting concerns, and corn-mills on the Derwent river."

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

The parish covers only 530 acres and a small stream called "Bottlebrook" runs through the village.
