About the location
STANTON BY DALE, DERBYSHIRE
Nottingham 7.5 miles; Derby 8.7 miles; Loughborough 15.3 miles
This small village and civil parish lies in the South East of Derbyshire. This quaint village retains its unspoilt charm. The Stanhope Arms and the Chequers Inn are the two watering holes situated within the village. During the second world war, there was a shortage of barbers in the local area, so the landlord used to cut customers’ hair, while they enjoyed a refreshing pint or two! A deep history surrounding the industiralisation of the area lies at the Stanton Ironworks company, which in the 1960's joined with Staveley Ironworks, together housing 7,000 workers manufacturing manhole covers and concrete street lamps. Also in the village, there is a plaque commemorating aviation pioneer Hugh Oswald Short who, with his two brothers, built some of the first British aircraft in history. There are charming cottages, almshouses, a traditional parish church and village hall, cricket ground and even a medieval cross overlooking a village green. The city of Nottingham is nearby, with a vibrant culture centred on its rich heritage and sporting glory. See live performances, excellent sport, nightlife and art in a series of venues, with Michelin star restaurants and high street shopping to indulge in. Derby lies to the west of the village, on the banks of the River Derwent, hosting a wealth of arts, culture and history, as well as festivals and events on throughout the year. The Peak District offers walking and outdoor activities in abundance, along with delightful market towns and villages to be explored.
