ST. THOMAS', NEW BRAMPTON, is an extensive ecclesiastical parish, formed in 1832 from that of Brampton and Chesterfield, including HOLYMOORSIDE, WALTON and part of NEWBOLD. The parish includes an area of about 5 miles by 3 on the borders of Chesterfield, and is on the river Hipper, in the Chesterfield division of the county, Scarsdale hundred, union, petty sessional division and county court district of Chesterfield, rural deanery of Chesterfield, archdeaconry of Derby and diocese or Southwell. Brampton and Walton are governed by a local board of 12 members, formed 5 March, 1875. The Chesterfield Tramway Co. run cars here from Chesterfield every 20 minutes. The parish is lighted with gas and supplied with water by the Chesterfield Water Works and Gas Light Co. The church of St. Thomas, erected in 1831, is a building of stone, consisting of chancel, nave and a western tower surmounted by four pinnacles and containing one bell: there are marble tablets to the Rev. Matson Vincent M.A. and the Rev. John Berridge Jebb M.A. first and second incumbents of this parish: a new chancel is now (1890) in course of erection, at a cost of £1,100 : the church contains 1,600 sittings, half of which are free. The register dates from the year 1831. The living was declared a rectory 16 Aug. 1867, average tithe rent-charge £210, net yearly value £250, in the gift of the Bishop of Southwell, and held since 1889 by the Rev. Edward Starkie Shuttleworth M.A. of St. Mary Hall, Oxford. There is a Congregational chapel, erected in 1873 and enlarged in 1877, at a cost or £2,700, with sittings for 480 persons.

There are two Primitive Methodist chapels, one of which, enlarged in 1866, will seat 200, and the other, built in 1871, has sittings for 300. There is a Working Men's Institute and Museum, and several large factories for brown earthenware and stone bottles, cotton wick, chip boxes, pot moulds, lint, fire-bricks and needles, besides a brewery, iron foundries and chemical works. The neighbourhood abounds with coal and ironstone. The Duke of Devonshire K.G. who is lord of the manor, Sir G. R. Sitwell bart. J.P. of Renishaw Hall, and Bernard Lucas esq. are the principal landowners. The soil is clay ; subsoil, clay. The chief crops are wheat and oats.
