- The parish of Eyam Woodlands no longer exists, but corresponded largely to the modern village of Grindleford. It was bounded by Bretton Clough in the west, included Hazelford and Leam to the north, and was bounded by the River Derwent to the east. Crossing over the river at Grindleford Bridge would have taken you into the Township of Nether Padley, or you could turn right taking the footpath towards Hay Wood (now National Trust property) crossing over the Hay Wood Brook into the parish of Froggatt.
Goatscliffe Brook was the boundary to the south, bordering the separate parish of Stoke, which extended to Stoney Middleton Brook. Both Stoke and Nether Padley are now also part of Grindleford parish.
