- Alsop-en-Le-Dale (Description from Harrison, Harrop & Co.'s Directory & Gazetteer of Derbyshire 1860): Alsop le Dale is a township, chapelry and secluded village, on the Bakewell road, 5 1/2 miles N.N.W. from Ashbourn. The church, dedicated to St. Michael, is an ancient Norman structure.
- Old Brampton (Description from Pigot's 1835 Directory): Brampton is a village and a parish, about 3 1/2 miles west from Chesterfield. At Brampton moor are extensive stone potteries, belonging to Messrs. T. Oldfield and Co., Messrs. H. and S. Briddon and Mr. J. Wright; Mr. W. Briddon, at Walton, and others; at New Brampton, are iron works, and in the neighbourhood is a coal mine.
- Chesterfield (Description from Pigot's 1835 Directory): Chesterfield is an ancient corporate and market-town, and parish, in the hundred of Scarsdale, 150 miles from London, 48 S.E. from Manchester, 24 N. from Derby, the like distance E. from Buxton, 12 E. from Bakewell, the like distance S. from Sheffield, and 8 N. by E. from Matlock. It is a large but irregularly built town, pleasantly situate between two rivulets, the Hyper and Rother, in the beautiful and fertile vale of Scarsdale, and is the second considerable town in the county of Derby. The Saxon appellation of Ceaster proves it to have been a place of great antiquity and considerable importance, and it is imagined to have originated from a Roman station. The trades which contribute to the prosperity of the town are various, comprising the manufacture of hosiery, lace, and flax-dressing; in the immediate neighbourhood are malt-houses, besides some large iron foundries, tanneries, roperies, and brown-ware potteries; and the making of waggoners' frocks is carried on here, to a very great extent. Mines of coal, lead and iron are worked in the vicinity of Chesterfield; and a canal passes near to the town, which falls into the Trent at Stockwith, near Gainsborough.
