Description and Travel

"SPONDON, in the hundred of Appletree, is a parish which was formerly more extensive than now, the chapelries of Chaddesden, Lockhay, and Stanley having been some years since separated from it, and erected into distinct parishes. The village of Spondon, which is about three miles E.S.E. from Derby. is situate on a commanding eminence, overlooking the beautiful vale of Derwent, and is the residence of several highly respectable families."

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

The village of Spondon lies 3.5 miles east of Derby and 129 miles north of London, although it has been absorbed into the larger Derby municiple boundaries as of 1968. You may find current information at the Spondon Online site, incliding photographs.
