Status: Active, 3 volumes published
Two volumes were published in the early 20th century, Volume I (1905) and Volume II (1907) before a cessation of VCH activity in the county. Work formally restarted in 2002 and between 2005 and 2010, VCH Derbyshire was part of the England's Past for Everyone project. As a result, two paperback volumes were published; Bolsover: Castle, Town and Colliery and Hardwick: A Great House and its Estate. In addition to the published volumes, a range of interactive web resources relating to Bolsover and Hardwick were made available on the VCH Explore website.
The first of our new hardback sets of parish histories was published in late 2013, with a launch date set for spring 2014. This book concentrates on parishes in the Bolsover area namely Barlborough, Whitwell, Clowne and Elmton (including Creswell) and Bolsover itself.
Derbyshire VCH is actively researching parishes and townships in southern, western and north-eastern Derbyshire. Volume IV will feature Ault Hucknall, Heath, Sutton-cum-Duckmanton, Scarcliffe, Palterton, Langwith and Shirebrook.
As draft texts for volume IV become available we will mount them on this website. Texts will be accessible either as PDF files or as Word Documents. (For best results, view Word documents in 'Print Layout' mode). Use the back arrow (top left) to return to the main website.
