HEANOR is an extensive parish, including HEANOR, LANGLEY MILL, LANGLEY, MARLPOOL and SHIPLEY, in the Ilkeston division of the county, Morleston and Litchurch hundred, Basford union, Smalley petty sessional division, Belper and Ilkeston county court district, rural deanery of Alfreton, archdeaconry of Derby and diocese of Southwell, pleasantly situated on a lofty eminence on the road from Derby to Mansfield and is a terminal station on a branch of the Midland railway to Ripley and Butterley, opened in 1890; Heanor Gate station, on the Great Northern railway, is in Smalley parish; the town is 10 miles north-west from Nottingham, 9 north-east from Derby and 7 east from Belper. The boundary of the parish on the east side is the river Erewash, which also divides the counties of Nottingham and Derby. Heanor is governed by a Local Board of nine members, the board meetings being held on the first Tuesday in each month. The town is lighted with gas by the Langley Mill and Heanor Gas Light and Coke Co. Limited, and supplied with water pumped from the blue bind and grey rock; the works (which supply the whole parish) belong to the Local Board and are situated at Langley. Langley Mill is given under a separate heading. The church of St. Michael, given to Dale Abbey by Henry, Lord Grey of Codnor, in 1473, consists of chancel, clerestoried nave, aisles with arcades of four arches, and a lofty embattled western tower of the 15th century, with modern pinnacles containing 5 bells and clock with four illuminated dials ; the third and fourth bells are of early date, the others being respectively dated (1) 1781, (2) 1634, (5) 1686: the church was completely rebuilt, with the exception of the tower, in 1868, at a cost of £6,100: there is a memorial dated 1715 to Samuel Watson, the principal artist engaged in the elaborate wood carving at Chatsworth, who was born at Heanor and is buried in the church; there are others to the Mundy family; a brass to John Clark, of Codnor, ob. 1641, and a tablet erected in 1888 to the Rev. Conyngham W. G. Corfield MA. rector 1880-6: the stained east window was erected in 1883 to the Rev. Frederick Corfield, rector of Heanor (1868-79), and others to John Sutton Ray esq. (1868), Miss Frances S. Ray and Samuel Woolley: there are 750 sittings. The registers date from the year 1559 and contain matters of local interest. The living is a rectory, average tithe rent-charge £3, net yearly value £330, including 111 acres of glebe, with residence, in the gift of four trustees, and held since 1866 by the Rev. Claud Evelyn Lacey Corfield M.A. of St . Catharine's College, Cambridge. There are Wesleyan, Primitive Methodist, Free Methodist and Baptist chapels, and a meeting house for the Society of Friends. The cemetery, opened in 1858, at a cost of about £2,400, contains 4 acres of land, with 2 mortuary chapels united in the centre by a tower with spire, and there is also a residence for the curator; it is managed by a burial board of 9 members. Hosiery is manufactured here extensively; there are also several collieries in the parish. William Howitt, the historian, was born here 1795. The Market place, occupying three rooms, two of which were given by A. E. M. Mundy esq. was laid out in 1890, and a provision market is held every Saturday. A cattle fair is held here on the Thursday before Martinmas day. A charity of £7 5s. left in 1817 by the Rev. Francis Gisborne, sometime rector of Staveley, is now divided as follows :-£4 5s. for Heanor, £2 for Codnor and £1 to Cotmanhay. Here is a recreation ground of four acres, with a spacious pavilion, built by the Town Cricket and Football club. Heanor Hall is the property of A. E. M. Mundy esq. of Shipley Hall. George Hoskin Master esq. is lord of the manor. The principal landowners are A. E. M. Mundy esq. the trustees of F. T. Howitt and Messrs. G. B. and H. G. Gregory and the Butterley Co.
