Description and Travel

"About a mile S.E. from Hartshorn is the prosperous hamlet of WOODEN BOX, where are many pottery works, the inhabitants are almost exclusively employed."

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

The village is divided by the A511's traffic island. The village is virtually swallowed up by the conurbation of Swadlincote and Midway. The parish borders Leicestershire to the south.
