Ambergate  Derbyshire


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

AMBERGATE, a station on the Midland railway, near the mouth of the Amber rivulet, 10½ miles N of Derby. Here are a post office under Derby, and extensive lime works. A branch railway, of 11½ miles, goes off hence north-north-westward to Rowley, and traverses one of the most grandly picturesque districts in the empire. See Nottingham and Grantham Railway.
