Description and Travel

"MORTON, a parish and pleasant village, 3¼ miles N. from Alfreton, and 1¼ miles S.E. from Stretton Railway Station, and contained in 1851, 257 inhabitants. The church, dedicated to the Holy Cross, is a neat stone edifice in the decorated style. The living is a rectory; the Rev. Thomas Lund, B.D., incumbent."

[Description from Harrison, Harrop & Co.'s Directory & Gazetteer of Derbyshire, 1860]

The parish covers just over 1,250 acres and lies 7.5 miles south of Chesterfield. Alan WALKER has a photograph of the Village Hall on Geo-graph, taken in March, 2007. The Village Hall, on the western end of Main Road, often has a schedule of current events that visitors can enjoy.

Tony BAKER reminds us that Morton is the Centre of England.
