SHIRLAND, a pleasant village on the Chesterfield road, 2 miles N. of Alfreton, has in its parish about 1400 souls and 2942 acres ; including HIGHAM village, half a mile from Stretton Station and Shirland; HALLFIELD GATE, a little south of Higham, and many scattered houses. G. Turbutt, Esq. is lord of the manor, but a great part of the soil belongs to other freeholders. The Church (St. Leonard) is an ancient structure. with five bells. It was restored three years ago, at the cost of £900. The rectory, valued at £215, is in the incumbency of the Rev. Thos Grinfield, M.A. who has been absent many years; and in the patronage of the Rev. C. H. Ramsden, M.A., the present highly respected curate. At Shirland is a Methodist chapel, and a neat Dissenting chapel is now building at HIGHAM, where a cattle fair is held on the Wednesday after Jan. 1st. Near the church, handsome National Schools were built in 1850, at the cost of £884, raised by subscription and grants.
The school at Hallfield Gate has a small endowment, and the poor have several benefactions.
