[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]
Smisby has its own Village Website. If you click on the Parish Council link you can find recent Portable Document File newsletters about the village.
Boundary is a hamlet on the border with Leicestershire. It has since become its own Civil Parish.
