Barlow

BARLOW, a chapelry, in the parish of Staveley, union of Chesterfield, hundred of Scarsdale, N. division of the county of Derby, 3¾ miles (N. W. by W.) from Chesterfield; containing 627 inhabitants. The surface is undulated, and the scenery picturesque: the district abounds with coal, but there are no mines in operation; there are quarries of good stone for building. The living is a perpetual curacy; net income, £95; patron, the Rector of Staveley. The tithes were commuted, with certain exceptions, for land in 1817. The chapel is a plain neat structure, containing 300 sittings, of which one-third are free.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
