  • Rivers and riverine place-names
    19:30 -21:00
    21/01/2022
    Darley Lane, Derby, DE1 3AX

    Speaker: Dr. Richard Jones

    Early medieval place-names offer unique insights into local environmental conditions over a thousand years ago.  Focusing on the rivers and riverine-place-names of Derbyshire and neighbouring counties, this paper will explore what these names have to say about the rivers and their behaviour in the past, and how we might draw on this information to live with the growing threat of flooding in the twenty-first century.

  • The Life & Times of Warney Mill in Darley Dale

    Darley Lane, Derby, DE1 3AX

    Speaker: Tony Bonson

    John Else was the miller at Warney Mill from 1847 to 1869 during which time he built a new mill at Warney. Fortunately, many documents concerning John Else’s business and the building of the new mill have survived. The talk covers the history of the mill before the arrival of John Else, together with the milling history of the Else family. The story of the mill after John Else’s death up to the present day is also covered. John Else’s documents have provided the basis of a book that not only tells this story but also gives a glimpse of rural life in the mid-19th century when the world we know today was just emerging
