    Great Site! I have some ancetors that lived in the area and worked at Trimdon Grange and at Crow Trees in Quarrington in the early to late 1960s. I appreciate all Pictures and Information from your site. Keep up the good work

    What a great website, I feel as I've no need to look anywhere else well maybe the auction sites.
    I was thinking of putting on a website with photos of Derby but now no need but when I get a round to it, can I put on a link to your page?

    I'm in Derby and have a great interest in Derby old and new.

    I found your page when browsing the Evening Telegraph site not sure which section tho'.

    Thank you for a wonderful experience on your website, I'm now going back to look again.

    Brilliant site! I remember Tilton well, my father farmed at Whatborough on the hill, and at Rodhill Farm, and I went to old village school there, I remember the Meakin family having a shop down way past the Church

    I love the site and it is lovely to see so many names I
    recognise. However, as an original born and bred Mow Cop lad I have
    to say I am feeling a little precious about how the boundaries of the
    lovely hill (which by the way Mr Vernon Ball, Headmaster at Woodcock
    Well School, took great pains in teaching us actually just falls in
    the height to be called a mountain)are being stretched. Mount
    Pleasant, Scholar Green, Dales Green, The Rookery, Harriseahead etc.
    are not Mow Cop. Sorry folks - you are not originals but imposters.
    You are rather special however if you are a Mow Cop original and so I
    can understand you trying I suppose!
    Some facts are getting slightly skewed also. For example Jack Blood
    was not an undertaker (although he helped Freddie Thornton sometimes).
    the only undertakers on Mow cop were the Hancock's - Charles and then
    his eldest son Joe. Freddie Thornton was Dales Green,Wilsons down The
    Bank and Scholar Green and Tom Bailey at Harriseahead
