"SANDIACRE is a village, in the small parish of its name, in the same hundred as Ilkeston, about four miles, south, from that town, & about nine, east, from Derby, situate close to the western boundary of the county of Nottingham. A market and fair was formerly held in the village, but at present little importance belongs to it as a place of trade."
[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]
The M1 Motorway runs just west of the village. The parish borders on Nottinghamshire to the east and covers 1,090 acres.
