"TICKNALL is a parish and village, in the same hundred as Repton, the village being about 4 miles S.E. from Repton, and about 5½ N.N.W. from Ashby-de-la-Zouch. Within the parish are very extensive lime-works, wrought to great advantage, together with kilns for burning their produce. The lime is conveyed by rail-road to the Ashby canal, and from thence distributed to more remote parts of the country."
[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]
David GRIMSHAW has a photograph of the Village Hall on Geo-graph, taken in October, 2005. Visitors should drop in and ask for a schedule of forth-coming events.
Scaddows Wood is a new planting of trees as part of the National Forest, just north of the village.

Ticknall was an estate village belonging to Calke Abbey until the late 20th century, though it appears now (2010) the boot is on the other foot! Derbyshire Record Office's catalogue of Church of England Registers says that in recent years, the church of St Giles, at Calke, has become in effect a private chapel in Calke Park, and the remainder of the parish has become absorbed by Ticknall.
