Description and Travel

"QUARNDON is a village in the parish of its name, in the same hundred as Allestry, about three miles and a half N.N.W. from Derby; deriving some celebrity from its chalybeate waters, which are considered highly beneficial in cases of debility, and from the salubrity of its situation."

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

The village lies three miles north of Derby city. Photographs of Quarndon are at the Derbyshire Photos site.
