Description and Travel

"SWADLINCOTE is a hamlet, in the parish of Church Gresley, about half a mile therefrom, and partakes with that place in the prosperity derived from the pottery works and mining operations, which, together, afford employment to many hands. A new rail-road has been laid down, from the colliery of C. Granville, Esq., to join the Ashby-de-la-Zouch canal, at Moira; and a bill has been laid before parliament, for its sanction to a new road from hence, to communicate with the bridge now erecting at Walton-upon-Trent, which, when effected, will materially shorten the distance between this improving manufacturing district and those in Staffordshire. The Wesleyan methodists have a chapel here. The population of the hamlet, in 1831, was 645."

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

In 1891, the parish covered only 642 acres. This expanded to 680 acres in 1934 and to 3,755 acres by 1961. Swadlincote is near the junction of the A514 and the A511. You will find that locals refer to the place as "Swad".
