Heanor Market Town

 

Heanor Heritage

 

Mentioned in the Domesday Book as 'Hainoure'.  The town of Heanor was once the route of the world's longest tramway running from Nottingham to Ripley.

 

Shipley Hall was used by D H Lawerence as the setting for his famous novel, Lady Chatterley's Lover.  The Hall has been demolished but elaborate iron gates from the house now stand as the entrance to the town's memorial park.  The park was established in 1950 and is a memorial to those who lost their lives during WW2.  The area where the actual house stood is situated within the attractive setting of Shipley Country Park, where there is over 18 miles of bridleways and footpaths.
