Pictures of Stanley and Stanley Common
The Parish of Stanley and Stanley Common is a vibrant, thriving and friendly community located in South East Derbyshire, about eight miles north-east of Derby.
The welcoming village signposts and Parish logo represent the villages heritage in the headstocks for mining, tractor for farming and the windmill that still exists today at Cat and Fiddle Lane in the neighboring Parish of Dale Abbey, for flour milling.
Historically these three industries, together with brick making, rope making and quarrying were the main occupations and sources of prosperity for local people and provided the wealth which contributed to the development of the Parish. A railway network, now long since gone, served the collieries and parishioners in its industrial heyday, with a station on Station Road.
