DESCRIPTION

The old parish of Hartington was of considerable extent, being divided into four quarters. Town Quarter on the Staffordshire border, 10 miles north-east of Ashbourne, which now forms the village of Hartington, Nether Quarter from which the parish of Biggin was formed in 1849, Upper Quarter from which was formed the parish of Burbage in 1869 and Middle Quarter which in 1873 became the parish of Earl Sterndale.

The village of Hartington is situated amongst beautiful hills and dales, close to the River Dove in Beresford Dale which forms the boundary between Derbyshire and Staffordshire. It is in this spot that Charles Cotton built his Fishing House in 1674 and where he and Izaac Walton, author of 'The Complete Angler', used to meet and discuss their fishing.

There are numerous 18th century cottages in the village which is centred round the village pond and green. It is here that a market was held, being granted in 1204 and said to be the first in the Peak District. Hartington Hall, now a Youth Hostel, was built by the Bateman family in 1611 and was restored in 1861.

The church, dedicated to St. Giles, stands on high ground above the village and dates mainly from the 14th century, although there are signs of the 12th century stones and earlier, built into the walls and in the porch. The church was restored in 1858. The registers dating from 1610 have been deposited at the County Record Office, Matlock and can be viewed on film.
