RIPLEY is a thriving market town and township, with two railway stations, and in 1855 was formed into a parish from the parish of Pentrich ; it is 5 miles north-east from Belper, 137 from London by rail and 136 by road, 3½ south-west from Alfreton, and 10 north from Derby, in the Ilkeston division of the county, hundred of Morleston and Litchurch, Belper petty sessional division and union, Alfreton county court district, rural deanery of Alfreton, archdeaconry of Derby and diocese of Southwell. Waingroves, annexed to this parish for civil purposes in 1888, under the "Divided Parishes Act," is ecclesiastically attached to Codnor and Loscoe. A branch line of the Midland railway from Derby was opened for passenger traffic in 1857, with a station near the town, and in 1890 was extended to Butterley station, situated one mile north on the Ambergate and Pye Bridge branch: in the same year a new line was opened for passenger traffic to Codnor and Heanor, joining the branch 1 mile south of Ripley station. The town is the management of a Local Board of twelve members, formed in 1867 ; it is lighted with gas and supplied with water from an artesian well 180 feet deep; the works, situated near the Market place are the property of the Local Board. The church of All Saints, erected in 1821, is a building of stone in the Decorated style, consisting of chancel, nave, porch and an embattled tower at the south-west angle, containing a clock and 5 bells, dated 1861; the lower stage of the tower forms a porch: it was completely restored in 1861, and an organ was presented by Major Jessop in 1863: there are 600 sittings. The register dates from the year 1821. The living is a vicarage, net yearly value £284, including 56 acres of glebe, in the gift of the trustees of the late Francis Wright esq. and held since 1887 by the Rev. William Edgar Bradstock M.A. of Brasenose College, Oxford. A vicarage house was erected in 1865. St. John's district iron church, at Green Hillocks, was erected by the Butterley Company, at a cost of about £800; the Rev. Charles Robert Round has been curate in charge since 1884. There are Baptist, Wesleyan, United Free Methodist, Primitive Methodist, and Congregational chapels, and the Christadelphians have a meeting room in Park road. A cemetery of five acres, with a mortuary chapel, was formed in 1858, and is under the control of a Burial board of nine members. The Market Hall, erected in 1880 by the Local Board, contains a large room for entertainments as well as a Board room and public offices, and a fire engine house. The E and F companies of the 1st Volunteer Battalion, Derbyshire Regiment, have their headquarters in the town. At Butterley are the blast furnaces, foundries, boiler yards and iron works of the Butterley Company Limited, who are also proprietors of several large collieries here and in the neighbouring parishes, in which hard
and soft coal of good quality is worked, adjoining the Cromford canal, and have a branch line of railway from Codnor Park to the Butterley works. Messrs. Crossley have an extensive establishment for the manufacture of cotton wicks and silk, cotton and mohair braids, boot laces &c. A market granted by charter of Henry III. and formerly held
on Wednesday, is now held on Saturday. Fairs are held on Wednesday in Easter week and the 23rd of October. Butterley Hall, the residence of Albert Leslie Wright esq. J.P. is a stone mansion, situated on a pleasant acclivity, with extensive pleasure grounds and good offices. There are no manorial rights. The shareholders of the Butterley Company Limited are the principal landowners. The area is 2,815 acres; rateable value, £26,181. The population of the township, including the hamlets of BUTTERLEY (which is in the postal district of Alfreton), GREEN HILLOCKS, GREENWICH, HARTSHAY, MAREHAY and STREET LANE, in 1881 was 7,298 ; the population of the ecclesiastical parish in 1881 was 6,824, and of local board district in 1881, 6,081.
