Long Eaton  Derbyshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Long Eaton like this:

EATON (Long), a township-chapelry in Sawley parish, Derby; at the verge of the county, on the Erewash river and canal, and on the Erewash Valley railway, 8 miles SW by W of Nottingham. It has a station on the railway, and a post office under Nottingham. Real property, £6, 827; of which £100 are in gas-works. ...

Pop. in 1851, 933; in 1861, 1, 551. Houses, 336. The increase of population arose from the erection of steam factories, and the facilities of railway communication. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Lichfield. Value, £300.* Patron, the Bishop of L. The church is old; and there are three dissenting chapels.
