Description and Travel

"STRETTEN-EN-LE-FIELDS is an inconsiderable parish, both in extent and population, in the hundred of Repton and Gresley, between four and five miles S.W. from Ashby-de-la-Zouch. The church, dedicated to St. Michael, contains some ancient tombs of ecclesiastics; the living is a rectory, in the patronage of Sir William B. Cave, Bart. The population of this parish has been retrogressive for the last thirty years, - in 1801 it contained 212 inhabitants, and in 1831 only 109."

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