"PLEASELEY is a village, in the parish of its name, which is in the same hundred as Bolsover, about four miles S.S.E. from that town. It was at one period of much greater consequence than it now is, having been a market town."
[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]
