During the 18th and 19th century, Ockbrook was a major centre of Moravian worship:
"At the village of Ockbrook, five miles from Derby, the Brethren built another beautiful settlement. For some years, with Ockbrook as a centre, they had a clear field for work in the surrounding district; they had preaching places at Eaton, Belper, Codnor, Matlock, Wolverhampton, Sheffield, Dale, and other towns and villages; and yet not a single one of these places ever developed into a congregation."
(A History of the Moravian Church, J. E. HUTTON, 1909)
"OCKBROOK is a parish, in the hundred of Morleston and Litchurch; the village is about two miles E. from Spondon, and about five E. by S. from Derby. This place partakes with Spondon in the manufacture of bobbin-net and lace. At a short distance from the village is an establishment of the Moravians, founded in 1750; the females, who are employed in fine muslin work, occupy a building, called the 'sisters' house', separated from that inhabited by the single men by a commodious chapel and a boarding-school. The parish church, dedicated to All Saints, is chiefly in the Norman style of architecture. A place of worship for Wesleyan methodists, and a national school, the latter erected in 1816, are in the village. The parish (which has no dependent township), contained, in 1821, 1,203 inhabitants, and in 1831, 1,634."
